Countering violent radicalisation by integrating minorities

About the Speech:

I would like to invite you to a keynote meeting at the Institute, with Dame Pauline Neville-Jones, UK Shadow Security Minister and National Security Adviser to the Leader of the Opposition, who will discuss terrorist radicalisation in the UK and new approaches to the integration of minorities.

Dame Pauline is Chair of the Conservative Party Group on National and International Security, and the Information Assurance Advisory Council. Previously, she was Chair of the UK Joint Intelligence Committee, a BBC Governor, QinetiQ Group Chair, NatWest Markets Managing Director, and Political Director of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

In early 2007, Dame Pauline’s Policy Group stated that multiculturalism has been mismanaged in the UK by promoting the identities of minority groups at the expense of national cohesion. This is a security threat in the context of militant Islamist radicalisation and the threat of terror. Dame Pauline will present a new approach to integrate minorities and prevent terrorism.

Dame Pauline will also officially launch Johnny Ryan\'s new book on this topic, Countering Militant Islamist Radicalisation on the Internet [available from Amazon.co.uk here]. This event continues the Institute’s work on immigration & integration and on radicalisation & recruitment to terrorism. Previous keynote speakers on these themes included Peter Bergen, Tariq Ramadan, Magnus Ranstorp.

About the Speaker:

 Pauline Neville-Jones was a career member of the UK Diplomatic Service from 1963 to 1996, during which time she served in British Missions in Rhodesia, Singapore, Washington, DC and Bonn. Between 1977 and 1982 she was seconded to the European Commission where she worked as Deputy and then Chef de Cabinet to Commissioner Christopher Tugendhat.

From 1991 to 1994 she was Head of the Defence and Overseas Secretariat in the Cabinet Office and Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet. For a very short period of just five weeks from the end of 1993 to the beginning of 1994 she was Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee (though in media appearances she quotes a "two-year chairmanship"). From 1994, until her retirement, she was Political Director in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, in which capacity she led the British delegation to the Dayton negotiations on the Bosnia peace settlement.
