Eroding Trust: Discussion of Open Society report on Prevent Wednesday October 19th

The launch of of a new report by the Open Society Justice Initiative assessing the human rights impact of the government’s Prevent strategy in health and education.

The report, entitled “Eroding Trust: The UK’s Prevent Counter-Extremism strategy in health and education” seeks to contribute to the debate on Prevent, at a time when the government is preparing to update the CONTEST counter-terrorism strategy of which it is a part.

Based on legal analysis, case studies of individuals directly affected by the Prevent strategy in health and education, as well as interviews with health and education professionals, current and former government officials, religious leaders, and community advocates, this report presents the most comprehensive account to date of how Prevent is being implemented in these areas.

The launch will take place on Wednesday 19th October in Committee Room 10 at 6pm. I would be delighted if you could attend.

RSVP to Priya Dev –
