UK Government renew counter-terrorism strategy to strengthen UK response

UK government

The UK government has launched CONTEST 2023, a refreshed approach to the evolving and enduring threat from terrorism, which will safeguard the public by strengthening the UK’s resilience.

For more than 20 years, the CONTEST strategy has sought to reduce the threat of terrorism in the UK and to its interests overseas.

CONTEST 2023 sets out the UK’s bolstered approach to a domestic terrorist risk that is once again rising and becoming increasingly less predictable. The updated strategy also addresses a persistent and evolving overseas threat from Islamist groups, and exploitation of technology by terrorists.

CONTEST 2023 will continue to counter the threat at every stage across Prevent, Pursue, Protect, and Prepare – from protecting against and mitigating the impact of terrorist attacks, to stopping people from becoming terrorists by curtailing radicalising influences.
