Abstract

Reflects on whether the Prevent strategy, intended to avoid persons being drawn into terrorism, is chilling expression in schools. Examines Prevent's operation, whether the term "extremism" is over-broad, whether referrals of pupils hinders free speech by creating suspect groups in the Muslim community, and the difficulty regarding external speakers. Notes the challenge of balancing restrictions with freedom of expression, and possible reforms.
