In light of the growing terrorist attacks EU has faced recently, EU needs to handle this crisis in a manner that will put an end to these horrible actions. Israel is one of the countries that has also experienced such incidents and some valuable lessons can be learned about ensuring the security everybody longs for. There is no one-solution-fits-all-problems when it comes to terrorism. Multiple solutions must be discussed and a plan of actions must be set in order to preserve security in EU and put an end to the terrorist attacks.
ECPM, together with special speakers on the theme of security and terrorism, is planning to discuss what EU can do to ensure its citizens safety from the terrorist attacks.
During the presentations there will be time for questions. Join us on this event and share with us what you think should be done in order to live in peace.
