Summary

trends_logoicsr_logo

The events in Nice have made it clear that the threat from terrorism in Europe is sustained, real, and that it needs to be much better understood. This event, which was co-organised by TRENDS Research & Advisory and ICSR, King’s College London, helped explore the connections between Europe and the violence being supported/carried out by Daesh/ISIS.

The process works two ways – attacks being carried out in Europe, either in Daesh’s name or directly controlled by Daesh and the process of individuals travelling to the Middle East to directly engage in violence being conducted in Syria and Iraq. This event sought to examine the motivations for individuals in Europe to engage in violence in Europe, or to travel to the Middle East, the methods Daesh is using to recruit and direct individuals, and how European States can better cooperate/coordinate their actions to preserve security here in Europe, as well as support the action for peace and security in the Middle East.
