Tackling Radicalisation in Education

Dear Colleagues,

Recent police figures show that the number of referrals to the UK’s anti-radicalisation programme doubled to over 3900 cases in 2015. This highlights the pivotal role of education providers in combating extremism and reducing the risk of radicalisation among young people.

With this in mind, Inside Government would like to invite Brighton Voices In Exile to attend Tackling Radicalisation in Education: Detecting, Preventing and Countering Extremism on Thursday 29th September 2016 in Central London. Delegates attending will hear from expert speakers, and learn new best practice case studies that will examine how to identify and tackle radicalisation, and how to work in successful partnerships to prevent extremism.
