On 7th November 2009 Quilliam co-director Ed Husain was the keynote speaker at a community event in Burton-upon-Trent organized by Staffordshire Police, which drew a range of local people including Muslim community members, prospective parliamentary candidates and police officers.
Ed spoke about his experiences with Islamist groups in his youth and the work of Quilliam. His talk was followed by a lively Q & A which covered themes ranging from the role of foreign policy in radicalization of Muslim youth to the alienation of Muslim women.
