Wed. 28th Jan, European Parliament: „European Jihadists“

Gepostet in Allgemein am 23. Januar 2015

As the current example of the Paris terrorist attacks show, young people are radicalized before going abroad as „foreign fighters“. When they return, they get weapons and pose a threat to citizens in Europe. European Jihadists – how do they arm ideologically before they go abroad and literally when they come back? We invited two experts to give us answers on this two important questions: Thomas Schmidinger, expert on de-radicalization and founder of will address the question of how to counter the radicalization process and Tomas Baum, director of the flemish peace institute based in Brussels will do a presentation regarding the necessity of fighting against illegal arm trafficking in Europe. The event „European Jihadists“ – hosted by Austrian MEP Josef Weidenholzer – will be held on Wed, 28th January, 16h30-18h00 in ASP3H1, European Parliament. The event will be streamed. Save the date!
