Recognising the great timeliness and significance of the issue, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) jointly with Fondazione Italianieuropei, are organising a launch event for the book ‘Daesh and the Terrorist Threat: From the Middle East to Europe’, which will take place on Wednesday, May 11th 2016, 5:00pm – 7:00pm, at the FEPS office. This Brussels event, which will feature introductory remarks by Massimo D’ Alema, President of FEPS and former Prime Minister if Italy, follows a similar book launch that took place in Rome on April 7th at the Foreign Press Association of Italy.

As it is widely recognised, Islamic terrorist attacks showed a dramatic escalation in 2015. Targeting European countries and objectives on an increasing basis, they represent a phenomenon that we must confront and better understand. For this reason, cooperation among EU member states in the fight against this threat has strengthened following the Paris and Brussels attacks. This book includes a collection of essays aimed to provide insight into the origins, evolution, principal characteristics, and unique means of recruitment and financing of Islamic terrorist organisations. Moreover, it examines the diffusion of Islamic radicalisation among young Europeans and of foreign fighters, who, in growing numbers, leave their home countries to join Daesh. 

Speakers: 

Massimo D’Alema, President of FEPS and Former Prime Minister

Kader A. Abderrahim, Research fellow IRIS, Contributor of the book

John Gatt-Rutter, Head of Counterterrorism Division, EEAS (tbc)

Nicolas Gros-Verheyde, EU journalist, Expert on Defense, Contributor of the book (tbc)
