A Review of Risk Management Approaches Relevant to Terrorism and Radicalisation
Largely in response to two terrorism-related incidents that occurred in the UK between late 2019 and early 2020, the Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Bill 2019-21 was devised (Law Society of Scotland, n.d.). As Hall (2020a) outlines, the proposed prioritisation of a fixed, determinate sentence (the Serious Terrorism Sentence) in the case of terrorism-related offences (outside of those for which a life sentence is warranted) presents specific practical considerations in Scotland due to the sentencing options available. Specifically, this refers to the Order for Lifelong Restriction (OLR).
The focus of this review is a discussion of the various ‘de-radicalisation’ programmes developed and utilised across the globe.
