Have you heard of Prevent? Stripped back to its bare bones, Prevent is based on a conveyor belt theory. It identifies three stages that lead to acts of terrorism; the first being extremism. This means having staunch unwavering views, a bit like most of the world; those of faith and atheists alike. These extremist views will lead the person to radicalisation; meaning to change their peaceful views fundamentally, leading them finally to turn to acts of violence. Prevent is based on this idea that if you interrupt this process you can prevent terrorist violence taking place.
