About the Project
These facts highlight the urgent need for empirical data about the intended and the unintended consequences of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 on adult safeguarding in the UK, as well as its wider social and ethical implications.
To collect such empirical data, the proposed project is likely to be based on mixed methods and will include a survey, semi-structured interviews, participant observations and case studies. This details of the proposal will be finalized with the PhD applicant. The project has the following aims:
In relation to social care and health professionals involved in adult safeguarding:
To ascertain how confident these professionals feel about their understanding of their duties under the 2015 Act and about their ability to comply with these duties
To discover how motivated they are to comply with these duties
To explore their perception and understanding of radicalization and their confidence in discussing with service users their religious and non-religious beliefs, values and culture
To examine professionals’ perception and understanding of the Government’s Prevent agenda and its current implementation
To explore the language, processes, procedures and systems involved in implementing the Prevent Duty
To examine case studies of service users through which we will also gain service users’ perspectives
To draw on the findings to provide recommendations for policy and practice
