An Honest Conversation about Islam, Terrorism and Extremism 23. nov 2016 Maastricht University


S&D went to the Nederlands, Maastricht University to attend the event "An Honest Conversation about Islam, Terrorism and Extremism"

The Ambassador Lecture Series invited – Ajmal Masroor (British Imam, Broadcaster and Politician), Nicola Benyahia (Founder of Families For Life) and myself; Karolina Dam (Founder of Sons and Daughters of the World).
Aim to put into perspective the two faces of Islam - its mainstream tradition of tolerance and the radical offshoot that is now struggling for control of the whole Muslim world.

I would like to express my gratitude and honour towards Maastricht University,  the "Ambassador Lecture Series" TEAM. Guys - you did a great job and are a very professionel bunch of kids. Driven and determined youth, interested in the world and the issues around you.
A special and warm thank you, to Luca and Costas that have treated us with the utmost respect and love. You guys rock  
This has deffo set the bar high for the next events im going to, from picking us up to and from the airport, making sure we had everything we needed, great hotel, setting up "the round table" where we could have an intemate talk with some of the students, talking everything through with us before and after, sorting the media and interviews.
No, we didn't have time to see Maastricht as such - but i saw it through you guys........ 500 students attending something that is so important to me, asking us questions, listening to our stories, crying with us, and to know that some of you had to call your mothers after the event... thats love.
I want to also thank you for taking good care of Nicola, that only recently went public with her story. It has been a long hard road for her, and i am happy you guys made it special.

Denmarks NEW Deradicalization Program

Time to roll up the sleeves and get to work.
February 2015 a new group was formed. A so called "expert group". They were to work on issues regarding radicalization and present the evaluation in august 2015 on what/how they recommended we solve the issues of radicalization. get the files here (in danish)

There are 15 main recommendations, among other things, they recommend strengthening cooperation and coordination between authorities, bind aspects on prevention and more dialogue and cooperation with private organizations.

Sounds good, and it seems to be well covered. A guideline so to speak. So now its a matter of getting it organized. Getting the right ppl for the jobs and setting off. A HUGE amount of resources need to be put in place. This is not an easy job and unfortunately things take time. Implementing the work on a broad scale isn't something that is done on this side of 2015. Many of us know what hasn't worked, what can be better and most of it isn't something new but now we have an evaluation where things are put in place. So lets see what happens 😉
