Seminar with Professor Denis Fischbacher-Smith
“Expertise in the grey zone: the role of expert judgment in formulating counter-terrorism policy in the UK"
The CBS Public-Private has the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar with Professor Denis Fischbacher-Smith, Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow.
The UK’s PREVENT strategy is based on a core assumption that the identification of potentially radicalised individuals before they cause harm is an effective means of intervening in what has become a wicked policy problem. This paper considers the challenges associated with the PREVENT strategy, its basis in academic research, and the challenges that it generates for the development of knowledge around the radicalisation process. The paper considers the challenges around the UK’s radicalisation policy by considering the views of experts that are drawn from a range of disciplines that are relevant to the radicalisation process. These include: religion, psychology, and law enforcement and the paper considers the policy challenges that intervention in radicalisation generate, especially in terms of the so-called ‘lone wolf’ terrorist.
