Thread: The latest statistics about govt's counter-terrorism #Prevent prog are out. Lots of interesting figures but here are some that I think are very troubling: Of the 7,318 ppl (mostly young ppl) referred to Prevent, *only 5%* are actually assessed to require Channel support.
2/How professionals decide *who is a risk* and how #Prevent prog arrives at risk factors is hugely impt. Huge Qs about how accurate the assessment is. Of the 7,318 ppl referred, many young & Muslim, 82% dismissed/referred to non-radicalisn services. But stigmatised either way.
The 95% "misdiagnosis" rate in #Prevent is worrying given that it disproportionately affects young Muslim ppl. Not many ppl realise this, but the way #Prevent is implemented - and its impact - is very similar to #Stopandsearch. It's humiliating and the stigma follows you.
We need to ask what is the effect of being referred to #Prevent? The entire process is a black box; it stigmatises young ppl and it's destroying trust btwn Muslim communities and trusted professionals. Here's a prize-winning essay from a 6th former abt it:…
Given that only 5% of ppl are assessed to require specialist Channel help, it's astonishing that there isn't a review of #Prevent, similar to #Stopandsearch. We know the stigma of Prevent on grps/individs are long-lasting so what are the reasons not to review it?@sajidjavid @EHRC
It’s also incredibly worrying that 1/3rd of referrals for govt’s counter-terrorism #Prevent prog are coming from trusted professionals in the education sector. In fact ~1,975 referrals are children under the age of 15. That’s shocking 4 many impt reasons. @educationgovuk @NASUWT
Great to hear that @LordroyKennedy’s amendment calling for an independent review of the Govt’s #Prevent strategy was carried by 214-196 a majority of 18 in the @UKHouseofLords yesterday evening. Well done! @NickTorfaenMP
