British values are under attack from extremists operating at a pace and scale not before seen. The government will meet this challenge with a new and more assertive approach to defeat extremists. It will challenge their ideology, and defend and promote the values that unite us, not just because we are proud of these values, but because they are the means by which we have made a diverse, multi-racial, multi-faith society succeed.

This new strategy has four key pillars. Firstly, the government will vigorously counter extremist ideology – making sure every part of government is stepping up to the plate. Secondly, it will actively support mainstream voices, especially in faith communities and in civil society. That means supporting all those who want to fight extremism, but are too often disempowered or drowned out in the debate. Thirdly, it will disrupt extremists, aggressively pursuing the key radicalisers who do so much damage. Finally, it will seek to build more cohesive communities, tackling the segregation and feelings of alienation that can help provide fertile ground for extremist messages to take root.
