The Prevent Duty and the UK’s Counterterrorism Strategy
Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right
- June 10, 2021
Natalie James, a doctoral candidate at the University of Leeds, joins “Right Rising” to break down the Prevent duty, a controversial counterterrorism program created by the United Kingdom. Along with host Augusta Dell’Omo, she takes us on a deep dive into the Prevent duty’s evolution and how it demands individual responsibility for combating radicalization.
In the podcast, James and Dell’Omo consider some of the Prevent duty’s controversial aspects, particularly the criticism that it disproportionately targets Muslim communities and how it identifies who is “vulnerable” to radicalization.
