The Government’s Revised Counter Terrorism Strategy (CONTEST) – 2018

Reports Prevent

This updated and strengthened CONTEST strategy reflects the findings of a fundamental review of all aspects of counter-terrorism.

The counter-terrorism strategy is organised with the tried and tested strategic framework of four ‘P’ work strands, each comprising a number of key objectives:

  • prevent: to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism
  • pursue: to stop terrorist attacks
  • protect: to strengthen our protection against a terrorist attack
  • prepare: to mitigate the impact of a terrorist attack
