isdOn 21st March 2014, Quilliam’s Senior Research in Islamic Studies, Dr Usama Hasan spoke at the event ‘Violent Extremism in Europe’, hosted by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue in association with Federal Public Service Home Affairs in Brussels. Dr Hasan’s talk was entitled ‘Returning fighters; needs, support and risks in the coming decade’, and emphasised the need to provide support and rehabilitation to returning jihadists from Syria rather than taking an excessively security-orientated approach to their return which risks further alienating them and making more difficult their reintegration into society.

Quilliam would like to thank the Institute for Strategic Dialogue and Federal Public Service Home Affairs, Brussels for hosting this event.
