    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.
