Jihadi Terrorism in Europe 2016-2017

This forward look at possible new Jihadi terrorist trends in Europe in the year ahead aims to give security managers fresh insight into a perennially shifting threat. The presenter will use a ‘from high theory to practical measures’ approach to sketch select potential security management challenges. From late springtime through the summertime Euro Cup 2016 in France he will proceed into the centennial year of the Balfour Declaration, 2017, in an effort to explore possible future issues and event triggers. The presentation aims to give the audience significant added value through original material and readily applicable security management ‘takeaways.’
