Radicalisation leading to violent extremism and terrorism is a complex and rapidly-evolving phenomenon. The
majority of terrorist suspects involved in recent attacks in Europe were born and raised in EU Member States, but
were radicalised and turned against their fellow citizens.
Preventing radicalisation is at the heart of the EU response to terrorism. It requires long-term, sustainable efforts
involving all relevant actors, different policy areas and actions at local, national, EU and global level. Over the past
two years, the Commission has driven action to counter radicalisation, both online and offline.
The Conference is organised by the European Commission's Directorate general for Migration and Home affairs.
The morning session will be dedicated to lessons learned from recent attacks in transport hubs and cultural / recreational areas on the one hand; and in open streets and by the misuse of vehicles on the other hand.
The afternoon session will allow panel discussions on Security by design in public buildings; and Cities against radicalisation.
Registration closed. Attendance by invitation only.
