UCLU Pi Media - UCL’s student magazine and newspaper - is hosting a panel discussion on the findings of the report commissioned by the Provost following the alleged attempt of former UCL student, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, to blow up a transatlantic flight. The inquiry panel – comprising four members from outside UCL (including the Chair of the panel), as well as a representative of the lay members of UCL Council and two UCL staff – was asked to explore the nature of Mr Abdulmutallab’s experience as an undergraduate student of UCL between 2005 and 2008, including his period as President of the student Islamic Society. The panel was also asked to investigate whether there were at UCL at that time conditions that might have led to Mr Abdulmutallab’s engaging in acts of terrorism, and whether there are at UCL today conditions that might facilitate the possibility of other students doing so in future.
