Al Qaeda and Europe

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Terrorism is a transnational threat in which Europe and the United States face shared challenges. In the wake of the September 11th attacks, cooperation grew between the United States and European nations on issues relating to security, such as combating transnational terrorist threats and ensuring the flow of trade and movement of people. As witnessed by the March 11th attacks in Madrid, terrorist threats are as pervasive in Europe as they are in the United States, and the results have been damaging to both European and American security, economic stability, and civil society. A strong alliance between the United States and its European partners is crucial in winning the war against terrorism. While there has been heightened cooperation between the two regions, much remains to be done.

Please join us at The Heritage Foundation for a discussion by a distinguished panel that will assess the common threats and shared challenges al Qaeda poses to the United States and Europe and how to respond to them in the years ahead.
