Since the rebellion against Ghaddafi’s regime began, Quilliam has been at the forefront of explaining the fast developing situation to western and international audiences. It has done this through the broadcast media and  newspapers, through twitter and social media and through issuing strategic briefing papers to policy-makers.

Quilliam’s knowledge of the internal dynamics of Libya and its understanding of Middle Eastern political and religious trends has rapidly made it the ‘go-to’ source for up-to-the-minute analysis of breaking events in Libya.
