What is terrorism?
Terrorism is legally defined as 'an action that endangers or causes serious violence to a person/people, causes serious damage to property or seriously interferes or disrupts an electronic system.... the use of threat must be designed to influence the government or intimidate the public and is made for the purpose of advancing a political, religious or ideological cause'... (source - Terrorism Act 2000.
It is often linked to extremist activity which is 'vocal or active opposition to fundamental (British) values' - (source Prevent Strategy 2011).
Radicalisation is a gradual process over time 'by which a person comes to support terrorism and forms of extremism leading to terrorism' (source Prevent Strategy 2011). Radicalisation typically involves adopting an extreme world view, one that is rejected by mainstream society and that sees the use of violence as a way to trigger change.
