The recent attacks in Paris, Jakarta, Brussels and Lahore are indicators of the rising terror threats in Europe and Asia. While calls for tighter security measures have become stronger, it is necessary to enhance international cooperation and contain Daesh extremism through comprehensive actions by all stakeholders including the Muslim communities themselves. The Dialogue analysed recent developments concerning extremism and the implications of terrorism on societies in Asia and Europe. Special attention was given to Daesh-linked activities in the respective countries, the different recruitment channels, reactions by the local Muslim community, possible future developments and responses.
Access to the event is by personal invitation only!
