This annual conference will analyse the latest developments in the European Union’s response to the threat of terrorism, with a focus on the various means and methods to anticipate, prevent, protect against and respond to terrorism, from the perspective of both law enforcement and the judiciary, as well as other actors in the field.
It will look at the actions being implemented since the adoption of the EU Counter-Terrorism Agenda and evaluation of EU rules on combatting terrorism, law enforcement early detection capacities, tackling terrorist content online, how to deal with foreign fighters and lone actors, as well as the reintegration and rehabilitation of radicalised individuals into society.
