2020 marked the conclusion of another difficult decade for Europe in terms of terrorism and radicalisation. Attacks in France, Germany and Austria in particular showed the dynamic nature of the threat faced from numerous different ideologies, as well as ingrained societal tensions which appear to be feeding different parts of the threat. In order to understand how this threat is going to set the picture for the foreseeable future, ICPVTR is holding a series of events during the year to explore different aspects of the evolving threat picture in Europe. From the extreme right, single-issue extremists, to more traditional violent Islamists or the ever-present residual extreme-left, this series will explore what the European threat picture looks like, how it might evolve in the future and its salience for regional dynamics elsewhere.
