The Prevent programme: an ethical dilemma for teachers as well as psychiatrists

  • Stephanie Reed (a1)
Summary

The UK government's Prevent programme affects professionals and the people who rely on their services across the public sector, particularly now that workers are legally bound to report their concerns about individuals they believe to be at risk of radicalisation. This article discusses the risks that the strategy presents to the work of teachers and the bonds of trusts between staff and students.
