Advice to an incoming Government on counter-extremism policy

15 January 2010 | 5:00pm | Seminar

Chemistry Lecture Theatre D

Speaker: Maajid Nawaz: Co-founder and Co-Director of Quilliam, the London based counter-extremism think tank.

Maajid Nawaz was formerly on the UK national leadership for the global Islamist party Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), and he was involved in HT for almost 14 years. He was a founding member of HT in Denmark and Pakistan and eventually served four years in an Egyptian prison. In prison, Maajid gradually began changing his views until finally renouncing the Islamist Ideology for traditional Islam and inclusive politics. He now engages in counter-Islamist thought-generating, writing, debating and media appearances.
