On 16th March 2010, Quilliam co-Director Maajid Nawaz spoke at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).


Maajid spoke to a gathering of students on the topic of ‘Radicalization and Counter-Radicalization’. The speech began with him presenting the Islamist narrative and worldview. He then went back over the narrative, highlighting key components of it whilst simultaneously providing a critique of its core characteristics. This was followed by a question and answer session, where a number of pertinent questions were raised and important issues discussed.
