Public Sector Event

Tackling Radicalisation Conference

Venue: Central London

Date: 20 Oct 2016

Synopsis: Tackling Radicalisation Conference – Thursday 20th October 2016 – Central London


This national conference comes amid a number of high profile incidents across Europe, an increase in hate crimes being reported and a rise in the number of individuals referred to Channel.

With the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 placing a duty on individuals to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism, developing a multi-agency response to tackling radicalisation and building greater community cohesion is vital.

As organisations develop their strategies for responding to and reporting individuals on the path to becoming radicalised, this event brings together leading experts from the Home Office and Department for Education to share proven ways to prevent vulnerable people and groups from being drawn into terrorist activity.

Key areas of focus include:

·         Building new partnerships to improve the safety and resilience of individuals and society

·         The role of education in promoting an alternative narrative to extremist ideology

·         Protecting young adults through greater engagement with families and community groups
