Dear Lauren.,

As discussed in our phone call, please treat this request as one that seeks to understand the extent to which the university applies the Prevent policy. In the cases of other universities who have responded to this request, for example, researchers and others under the university's umbrella are obliged to provide a notification when they are engaged in research which might be regarded as security sensitive in accordance with the university's interpretation of Prevent.

This might, perhaps, encompass research which access websites engaged in the promotion of terrorism or interviewing subjects who have been engaged in radicalisation or in the promotion of terrorism.

Yours sincerely,

Ben Quinn
