The Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., will host a discussion on the challenges of countering terrorism and ways allies can exchange information better.
Following the terrorist attacks in France and Belgium, the Dutch government during the Netherlands’ presidency of the European Union developed a roadmap to increase and improve the exchange of information between European states.
Mr. H. (Dick) W.M. Schoof, National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism for the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice, will present the roadmap and discuss its implications and potential for preventing further strikes inside of Europe.
Brig. General Francis Taylor (Ret.), Undersecretary for Intelligence and Analysis for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, will discuss the implications of the roadmap authored by Mr. Schoof, and the current state of information sharing between the EU and the US.
Thomas Sanderson, Director of the CSIS Transnational Threats Project, will moderate the discussion.
