The recent, Challenging Hateful Extremism report,
highlights the increase and prevalence of extremism in our society. Whether far right, Islamist, or far left, extremists are exploiting local and national tensions, to normalise their views and spread hateful extremism.
Westminster Insight’s Tackling Extremism Conference
features Sara Khan,
the first Commissioner for Countering Extremism, Home Office,
who will review how public services and communities must unite to challenge and resist extremism, and adopt a victim centred, whole society response.
Join us to explore how multi agency strategies
local councils, communities, and faith groups to support vulnerable individuals
and marginalised communities, identify rising tensions and work to tackle extremism at a grassroots level.
We will review the role of extremist online content
and social media
in exploiting tensions and spreading hateful propaganda, and how we can work to challenge narratives and ideologies and prevent online radicalisation.
Join your peers from central government, police, prevent officers, teachers, front line service professionals and government,
to network and discuss important approaches to challenge hateful extremism and create a safe and inclusive society for all.
