The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 - The Prevent Duty

To provide an insight into how the Prevent Duty is being implemented by the University

Who is it for?

All Staff

Session Objectives:

To provide an overview of the requirements of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 and an insight in to how the Prevent Duty is being implemented in the University.

As part of the Government’s strategy to reduce terrorism in the UK, the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 introduced a range of measures with the aim of countering the threat of radicalisation and the risk of people being drawn into terrorism. Public bodies, including higher education institutions (HEIs), are now subject to the statutory Prevent Duty. This means that we, along with other universities, are required by law to demonstrate that we have arrangements in place and pay due regard to the need to safeguard people in our community from being drawn into terrorism.

This session provides an insight in to how, as an institution, we are committed to ensuring a balance between the obligations of the Prevent Duty and our wider obligations to Freedom of Speech, Academic Freedom and Equality.
