On 3rd February 2010, James Brandon, Quilliam’s Head of Communications, spoke at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University as part of their series of talks on ‘Journalism and Public Responsibility’.

 

In his opening presentation, Brandon discussed how the British media has covered Islamist extremism since the Salman Rushdie Affair in 1989 and suggested ways in which the media’s coverage of Islam and Muslims could be improved in the future.

 

Following his presentation, there was an hour and a half of lively discussion with the audience, chaired by John Lloyd of the Financial Times.
