Stronger EU action to tackle terrorism

best-security-company-london-uk-1151114_960_720Delivering on its European Agenda on Security, the European Commission is today presenting further steps to support Member States in preventing and countering violent radicalisation leading to terrorism.

While responsibility for addressing violent radicalisation leading to terrorism lies primarily with Member States and actors at local, regional and national level, radicalisation, like terrorism, knows no borders. This was evident in the events leading up to the attacks in Paris and Brussels. Today the Commission is outlining actions in seven specific areas where the EU can bring added value, from promoting inclusive education and common values, to tackling extremist propaganda online and radicalisation in prisons. Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans said: “Recent terrorist attacks have shown how some young Europeans have fallen prey to an ideology of death and destruction, breaking away from their own families and friends and turning against their own societies. This calls for a determined response by society as a whole, to prevent radicalisation and strengthen the ties that bind us together. The EU should help wherever it can.” The initiatives put forward are a follow-up to the ‘Paris Declaration‘ of 17 March 2015 promoting citizenship and common values through education.
