  Add to Calendar 2017-03-17 10:00 2017-03-17 13:30 Europe/Paris Multidisciplinary Research Workshop - All for one and one for all? Coalitions in the fight against terrorism

Like the mythological Hydra, multilateral coalitions have many heads and the potential to be extremely effective. Unlike the Hydra, however, the coalition’s heads often go their own way, following their own strategy even when it is at odds with the overall goal of the coalition. Managing these coalitions is an extenuating and yet vital task in the fight against terrorism. The workshop aims to explore the formation of multilateral coalitions, the way they fight, the dilemmas and trade-offs they face and to identify best practices in coalition management. For instance, what lessons can be drawn from the multilateral operations against the Islamic State in Mosul? How can multilateral coalitions share the intelligence their partners possess without compromising that intelligence? How have the EU and NATO fared in its fight against terrorism? The workshop brings together academics and practitioners, with keynote speeches by Ambassador Alessandro Minuto-Rizzo, former Deputy Secretary General of NATO, and Prof.Olivier Roy

Organisers: Matteo Faini (RSC), Tine Gade (RSC), Stefano Marcuzzi (RSC)
