A Special Briefing on

 

European and U.S. Counter-Terrorism Strategies:

 

Quo Vadis?

 

 

 

The latest attacks in the UK, France, and elsewhere have once again focused the world's attention on terrorism nationally, regionally, and globally. Moreover, in the aftermath of President Trump’s first foreign trip as well as his decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Agreement on climate, what are the likely directions for U.S. and European counter-terrorism strategies in the short and long terms? Will “America First” and “Europe First” priorities dominate future policies and actions or will a reset of multilateral cooperation to combat terrorism emerge between the allies?

 

 

 

These and related challenges and opportunities will be discussed by European and American experts.
