Directors Maajid Nawaz and Ed Husain met with Wall Street Journal editors in New York on 17th September 2008 for a roundtable discussion, and they introduced the work of The Quilliam Foundation. The editors were interested in the personal narratives of the Directors, their journeys and the lessons learned from their experiences.
Questions were asked about:
1) The state of Muslims in Europe and government policy towards them.
2) The role played by civil society organizations.
3) How efforts underway in some Far Eastern countries compared to US and European initiatives.
The Quilliam Directors in turn inquired about US policy and civil society organizations, and gave policy recommendations that may be beneficial in dealing with Islamism in the US.
