Since 2011, our counter-terrorism strategy CONTEST has addressed “all forms of terrorist threat to this country and our interests, whether it originates here or overseas”, regardless of the ideology that inspires it. Our Counter Terrorism Strategy does not target a specific faith or ethnic group - it deals with all forms of terrorism. Currently the greatest threat comes from terrorist recruiters inspired by Daesh.
