Combating Terrorism in Europe: Strengthening the Tools and Ensuring a Coordinated Response



Thursday 17th of May 2018


In recent years, several countries of the European Union have faced violent terrorist attacks, carried out by organised cells as well as by individuals operating alone, inspired by the beliefs of violent extremist organisations. According to the 2017 EU Terrorism Situation and Trend Report (Te-Sat) by Europol, in 2016 eight Member States reported a total of 142 failed, foiled and completed attacks. As a consequence of the completed attacks, and in most cases at the hand of jihadist terrorists, 142 victims died and 379 people were injured. The threat of terrorism has not touched all Member States equally, yet every country may be subject to the risks deriving, for instance, from being an unintentional transit point or a safe haven for terrorists.

This timely symposium will provide police officials, security professionals, local authorities and other key stakeholders with an invaluable opportunity to discuss the latest advancements and challenges in the fight against terrorism across Europe. Delegates will also explore how digital tools and the engagement of local communities can be effectively employed in counteracting violent ideologies.
