#BrusselsAttacks: Attacks ‘show the need’ for improved co-operation between Europe’s intelligence agencies

24 March 2016

EU Reporter provides an overview of the event, hosted by EFD and the European Policy Centre and supported by the Counter Extremism Project, on 22 March 2016. The article discusses in depth what the speakers discussed during the policy dialogue, including analyses from EFD Executive Director Roberta Bonazzi, EFD Senior Policy Advisor Alexander Ritzmann and EFD Senior Fellow Bakary Sambe.

In light of Brussels attacks which occurred only hours before the briefing, many of the speakers questioned the coordination of security agencies in and beyond Belgium. They also highlighted the potency of the pervasive extremist ideology with regards to susceptible individuals and communities.
