Directors Maajid Nawaz and Ed Husain met with terrorism specialists at the United Nations in New York on 17th September 2008 to discuss work underway to undermine the appeal of terrorism as a tactic.

 

Ideas were exchanged between The Quilliam Foundation and the specialists on:

 

1) Lessons learned and best practice.

 

2) Mutually beneficial projects and potential partners that The Quilliam Foundation and the UN may have in common.

 

3) The UN’s image as a neutral peacemaker in contemporary conflicts, and the relevance this has for civil society organizations in the field.
