Abstract

The introduction in 2015 of a legal duty requiring that all providers
of compulsory education in Britain pay ‘due regard to the need to
prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’ prompted extensive
policy, academic and public debate. To date however we still have a limited
understanding of how this ‘Prevent Duty’ is playing out on the
ground in schools, colleges and early years provision. This chapter sets
out how this volume contributes towards addressing this gap in the literature.
We draw attention in particular to the volume’s emphasis on detailed
empirical analysis, introduce the concept of ‘policy enactment’ (Ball, S.,
Maguire, M., & Braun, A., How schools do policy: Policy enactments in secondary schools. Routledge, Abingdon, 2012) and discuss how this concept
has informed the broad analytical approach adopted in this volume.
