In partnership with Faiths Forum for London (FFL) ICIC will deliver an important field research commissioned by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) which will seek to understand the perception on current strategies on CVE and how to improve them.   

The research programme seeks to deliver tailored focus groups aimed primarily at young Londoners, aged 13-26. The focus groups which ran from October – November 2018, had facilitated and encouraged discussions around identity and social integration. This also doubled up as  an opportunity for young Londoners to have their say on Government strategies and whether they believe these strategies are successful in dealing with the issues and threats posed from extremist.

The project offered a fantastic opportunity for young Londoners to engage and influence policy, as the research and data gathered will feed directly into the Mayor’s review which will be published in 2019.  


About the Programme;

In December 2017 the Mayor of London introduced a City Hall-wide Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Programme which ran throughout 2018.

The programme aimed to empower Londoners to speak out against extremism to help keep London safe.

The Mayor’s CVE programme had three core objectives:


  • working to strengthen London’s minority and marginalised communities,


  • to safeguard the vulnerable


  • to stop the spread of extremist ideologies


ICIC will publish the final report outlining the findings and recommendations during the first half of 2019.  For further inquires please email: [email protected]
