The EU and terrorism [What Think Tanks are thinking]

Written by Marcin Grajewski,

Terrorismus in Europa

Terrorist attacks in major cities – notably in Paris, Nice, Brussels, Berlin and, most recently, Manchester – have shocked Europeans, highlighting the security challenges for open democracies that result, inter alia, from conflicts in the Middle East and Africa and religious radicalisation at home. In response, the European Union is pushing ahead with its Security Union concept to boost cooperation among member states and use synergies in combatting terrorism.

This note offers links to recent commentaries and reports from major international think tanks on terrorism in Europe and the EU’s response to it. More studies on the topic can be found in a previous edition of ‘What Think Tanks are thinking’, published in December 2016.
