The future of European counter-terrorism policy: What next after Brexit and Trump?
25 April 2017
Central London Location
Quilliam and the Centre for European Reform are pleased to invite you to our joint conference on ‘The future of European counter-terrorism policy: What next after Brexit and Trump?’.
Recent attacks in France, Germany and the UK have reminded Europe that the terrorist threat remains high on the Continent and elsewhere. The new methods used by the attackers highlight the importance of online and offline radicalisation. As terrorists are now more mobile than ever, European and transatlantic co-operation is crucial to beat them. As the UK prepares to leave the EU, and a new president takes office in the US, the geopolitics of counter-terrorism co-operation are bound to change. What can the EU and its member-states do better to fight terror? What anti-radicalisation strategies work and how can governments help to implement them? Will the Trump administration be willing to continue co-operating with a European Union it does not understand?
Julia Ebner, Senior Researcher at Quilliam and co-author of ‘Terrorism and Radicalisation: Evidence Policy Advice’, will present the findings of the EU-funded study of counter-terrorism best practices from across Europe.
Camino Mortera-Martinez, counter-terrorism expert and Brussels representative at the Centre for European Reform, will chair a panel discussion on the future of European counter-terrorism policy with Lord Timothy Kirkhope, Member of the House of Lords, former Member of the European Parliament and rapporteur of the EU PNR directive, Ghaffar Hussain, Community Resilience Manager at the London Borough of Newham and Sean Arbuthnot, former police detective and Prevent officer.
