Terrorism and the Law: Freedom and Security in a Networked World Seminar 2 - Countering Radicalisation: An assessment of the effectiveness of the PREVENT/CONTEST Strategy

27 April 2017

Time: 5:30 - 8:00pm
Venue: Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary University of London, 67-69 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3JB

Part of the seminar series on Terrorism and the Law: Freedom and Security in a Networked World, organised by the School of Law, Queen Mary University of London.

The seminar series explores the subject of counter-terrorism and security from a legal perspective and in particular how security responses can be made effective to prevent attacks in the future and their compliance with human rights, in particular freedom of speech and privacy. In particular the series examines the role of social media and the internet in exacerbating the risks of radicalisation and recruitment of terrorists as well as the risks stemming from the use of online profiling for counter-terrorism purposes. The aim is to achieve a broad spectrum of legal perspectives on the issues and capture different stakeholder perspectives (privacy & human rights, law enforcement, industry), bringing together different perspectives.

The series will involve 5 seminars exploring a variety of aspects of the figure of the global jurist, with the following specific themes:

  • 'From national to global citizenship – What are the consequences for free speech?'
  • 'Countering Radicalisation: An assessment of the effectiveness of the PREVENT/CONTEST Strategy'
  • 'Crimes Versus Regulation as Responses to Terrorism Speech'
  • 'Do we really need bulk powers to counter terrorism?'
  • 'The Use of Algorithms and Profiling in Counter-Terrorism'.
