Prevent is described as being voluntary yet evidence shows that coercive tactics are being used in implementing Prevent

  1. Individuals are often not informed that Prevent is voluntary and feel that they have no choice but to engage with Prevent
  2. Simon Cole has said that Prevent is ‘voluntary’ but if individuals do not cooperate with Prevent, this will make the police suspicious and they may initiate the Pursue strand of Contest (UK’s counter terrorism strategy).
