Governmental Responses to Terrorist Attacks in Europe since 2000

Dates:
  • Fri 25 May 2018 09.00 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2018-05-25 9:00 2018-05-25 18:00 Europe/Paris Governmental Responses to Terrorist Attacks in Europe since 2000

The terrorist attacks that struck Paris on 7, 8 and 9 January 2015 were neither the first, nor the most lethal, of the attacks perpetrated by people claiming allegiance to radical islamism. The attacks can now be placed in a series of events in European cities and mark the beginning of a new wave of killings (in France, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, the UK, Spain).
However, the assassination of journalists at Charlie Hebdo in January 2015 created an unprecedented international and national shock. One expects any society that is attacked to increase its cohesion, each of its members gathering behind its leaders and symbols. In Paris, the French government effectively organised in a few days the largest march since the 1944 Libération de Paris, as well as a unique gathering of heads of states and governments. Since then, the strength of the publics’ reactions to terrorism can be seen online as well as offline and notably on the streets and receives wide coverage in the media and the social media. How do governments help their societies respond to the crisis?
