Over the past several months, Europe has found itself on the frontline in the fight against terrorism and jihadist radicalisation. These have become among the most serious threats to European security and the values on which the EU is built. In the wake of the November 2015 Paris attacks, the European Foundation for Democracy (EFD), the European Policy Centre (EPC) and the Counter Extremism Project (CEP) came together to analyse the rise of jihadist radicalisation in Europe and beyond and develop concrete policy recommendations to tackle the issue head-on. This book, published exactly a year after the 22nd March Brussels attacks, is the result of a series of multi-stakeholder events and workshops and features contributions from leading experts from across Europe.
