Description

Prevent, Welfare and Freedom of Speech

Friday 6 October 2017, 12.30 - 14.00

XFi Henderson Lecture Theatre, University of Exeter Streatham Campus (Streatham Campus map)

Please note: a separate event is planned to take place on Penryn Campus at a later date this academic year.

Event information

All University of Exeter staff and students are welcome to attend this open event.

Many of you will be aware that obligations are placed on higher education providers under the Prevent duty to have due regard to prevent individuals from being drawn into terrorism, but may not fully understand what this means in practice.

We would like to offer the opportunity for staff and students to learn about progress made by the University with the implementation of the duty, and how this has been balanced against our fundamental commitment to protect academic freedom and freedom of speech.

There are some commonly held misconceptions about the Prevent duty. This event will consider:

  • What the Prevent duty is, and what it is not
  • How we have complied with the Prevent duty
  • How we have done this while ensuring freedom of speech within the law and with a focus on the welfare of our students and staff

You will also have the opportunity to ask questions at this event, and we encourage participants to submit questoins or key points in advance when registering.
