Dear Ben Quinn,

 

Thank you for your email dated 15^th October requesting information about
the University of Warwick. Your request is being considered under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. We apologise about the delay in sending
this to you. Please find below your request and our response.

 

1. Your Prevent action plan or any document that outlines your
institution’s Prevent policy in line with your obligations under the
Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015

 

Please find the information requested in the attached documents titled:

·         FO22.18-19 – Prevent webpages.pdf

·         F022.18-19 – Research Code of Practice.pdf

 

2. Confirm if students, researchers and members of staff are obliged to
register research which is deemed to be security sensitive

 

Information about how security-sensitive research conducted by staff and
students is captured and reviewed by the University’s research ethics
committees can be found here:

[1]https://warwick.ac.uk/services/ris/resea...

Given the nature of these reporting procedures, which capture projects
from funded and unfunded research, there is no single register which
encapsulates all security-sensitive research projects. Projects are
reviewed on a case-by-case basis in relation to the project as a whole,
not only the security-sensitive aspects of the project. Records of all
research projects reviewed by the ethics committees are securely stored
internally. Any projects deemed by the research ethics committees to
require escalation to relevant authorities would be done so on a
case-by-case basis.

 

3. If such a register exists, the number of entries for each of the years
2018 (up to the date of this request), 2017, 2016 and 2015. By entries, I
mean occasions on which individuals have registered research which falls
into the category set out in bullet point 2. If possible, please identify
the nature of the research (eg PhD, internally funded, externally funded)
and topic

 

Please see response to question 2 above.

 

4. If such a register exists, confirm whether or not it is stored onsite
or on an external server.

 

Please see response to question 2 above.

 

5. If such a register exists, confirm whether the register is subject to
any information sharing agreements with external partners or agencies
including local and regional Prevent coordinators, the Home Office, the
local Counter Terrorism Intelligence Unit, the local police or any other
law enforcement agencies

 

Please see response to question 2 above.

 

6. A list of any agreements, arrangements or Memorandums of Understanding
between your institution and bodies such as the Internet Watch Foundation
(IWF), the Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU) of the
Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), or Police Intellectual Property Crime
Unit (PIPCU) of the City of London Police, to receive lists of illegal or
illicit content, for instance for the purposes of blocking.

 

The University has no records of any such agreements.

 

7.  Confirm if any filtering or blocking service that your institution
uses incorporate lists from the IWF, CTIRU or PIPCU, and which lists are
incorporated;

 

No

I trust that this information will be helpful to you. Should you require
any clarification, please contact me.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Ian Rowley
