Application of PREVENT is based on looking for signs of extremism.
Extremism has not been defined legally but has been defined by the Home Office as “vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs [and] calls for the death of members of our armed forces, whether in this country or overseas.”
