Contest: The United Kingdom’s Strategy for Countering Terrorism
The UK faces a significant threat from Al Qa’ida, its affiliates, associated groups and terrorists acting on their own – so called lone-wolves. We also face an ongoing and serious threat from Northern Ireland related terrorism.
The aim of this new counter-terrorism strategy is to reduce the risk to the UK and our interests overseas from terrorism, so that people can go about their lives freely and with confidence. To achieve this aim we have made significant changes.
