Roundtable with Baroness Williams on Countering Extremism

Following our approval for a 'Building a Stronger Britain Together' grant, our Research & Policy Coordinator Dr. Yasmine Nahlawi attended a roundtable discussion on 20 September with Home Office Minister Baroness Williams to discuss issues regarding rising extremism in our communities. We highlighted in particular the damaging potential of flawed foreign policy as well as the counter-productiveness of top-down strategies such as Prevent. We also mentioned some of the work that we are doing to build resilience within our communities, including integration and language courses for new Syrian arrivals, volunteer opportunities with the wider community, as well as cross-community events to ensure cohesion and understanding.
