Actions DFID undertakes as part of its mandate to reduce poverty also address the causes of radicalisation. Where appropriate, DFID will support:
Increased political participation, including strengthening civil society as a source of political accountability and as a means of representing excluded groups.
Improvements in the quality of education in both formal and non-formal systems.
More responsive government and the provision of public services in previously neglected areas.
High quality policing and access to justice for ordinary people.
A strengthened voice for women.
Independent media that can educate, inform and improve the quality of public debate.
In addition, DFID will introduce schemes to promote understanding of international poverty issues and seek to make development a common concern for diverse British communities.
