Building Alliances - Preventing Terror

Brussels, Belgium, 17 October - 18 October 2017

Following a disturbing and deadly wave of recent terrorist attacks in Finland, France, Spain, Sweden and the UK, the Building Alliances – Preventing Terror conference provides the foremost platform in Europe to discuss terrorism, terrorist financing and communications, and extremist ideologies.

Organised by the Counter Extremism Project (CEP) – a leading non-profit, non-partisan international policy organisation led by distinguished former world leaders and diplomats – the unique two-day conference will bring together senior policymakers and officials, as well as academics, industry representatives and advocates, who will share ideas for tackling the spread of extremism and terrorist propaganda in Europe and online.

With a focus on prevention, ten sessions featuring diverse and highly experienced panels will be marked by keynote addresses from European Commissioner for the Security Union Sir Julian King, Sir John Jenkins, Executive Director at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, former Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski and Dartmouth College professor Dr. Hany Farid.
