The Institute for Statecraft says it is an' independent' body 'dedicated to refreshing the practice of statecraft, to improving governance and to enhancing national security.' It claims to be 'free from financial, career path, commercial and political vested interests.'[1]

Counter radicalisation

The Institute is involved with the Active Change Foundation in delivering the Young Leaders Programme, a counter-terrorism programme funded, in part, by the Home Office Prevent programme. Some parts of this appear to be run in conjunction with Shared Outcomes a programme of the Institute for Statecraft.

According to Dan Lafayeedney of the Institute for Statecraft the British military have been involved in Prevent related activities including with or through the Active Change Foundation: [2]

In recent years the Armed Forces have taken the lead in developing ‘Youth Engagement’ projects in partnership with schools, local authorities, police forces and NGOs. These projects have demonstrated that the Armed Forces can make a significant contribution both to solving the problem of gangs and drug-related gang violence amongst inner city youth. This is acutely relevant to many other countries today. in the UK context, military youth engagement has proven very effective in countering radicalisation to violent extremism amongst at-risk young people in certain ethnic communities. This experience also has relevance in certain other countries. The cost-benefit to the State of preventing bad behaviour is difficult to quantify – but its value is self-evident... The Armed Forces have also been most successful in reaching out to Britain’s ethnic communities where some young people are at risk of radicalisation to violent extremism. The Active Change Foundation, which was set up by concerned elders of the Muslim communities in Waltham Forest after the 7/7 London bombings, is perhaps the best example. Plans are underway to extend this model to other communities around the country.
