Belgium works to fight radical extremism

25 March 2016

Following the attacks in Brussels on 22 March, EFD Executive Director Roberta Bonazzi is interviewed on CNN to discuss the multiple failures which culminated and led to the attacks. In the interview, she highlights the incredibly complex governance system of Brussels which played a large factor, making it especially difficult to coordinate and ensure security.

Bonazzi also fears however that we are now paying the price for several years of poor decision-making by policymakers to address and prevent radicalisation. She therefore highlights that better communication and coordination among security agencies is essential to prevent such attacks from taking place in the future.
