Upcoming Guest Speakers
A Leeds Law School Symposium on Prevent
Prevent is a pre-criminal stage, no one is prosecuted under it, and it is a multi-agency response to help those who are referred to it. However, suspicions remain that Prevent is another layer of state surveillance on suspect communities, a view not helped with the introduction of the statutory responsibility on those working in education, prisons and health to deal with individuals who behave or express terms that raise cause for concern.
