Al Qaeda and Europe
Recorded on April 26, 2004
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.
