    Prevent is the government’s counter-radicalization programme. The online fieldwork was preceded by a qualitative phase of research, comprising 12 focus groups attended by a total of 86 British Muslim participants, the results of which informed development of the questionnaire for the quantitative phase. Respondents who were employed in journalism, public relations, market research, the media/broadcasting, and policy, or who had family or close friends working in these fields, were screened out of the online recruitment process, in order to eliminate those likely to have disproportionate knowledge of the issues covered in the survey. Muslim data were weighted by age, gender, region, and ethnicity so as to be representative of the Muslim population at the 2011 census.
