Screen Shot 2016-03-22 at 21.26.40The latest edition of the TE-SAT (European Union Terrorism Situation and Trend Report) has become available online.

This strategic document has been prepared by experts at Europol and is based on contributions from EU Member States and Europol partners. The TE-SAT presents an overview of terrorist attacks in the European Union and outlines main trends related to terrorism.

Rob Wainwright, 2015, Director of Europol: “Following the terrorist attacks in early 2015 in Paris and Copenhagen, counter terrorism has become an area of even higher priority in the EU, re-confirming the need for stronger cooperation and a coordinated international response… Its aim is to provide a mechanism to identify and take down extremist Internet material. The EU IRU (Internet Referral Unit ) is another important step in ensuring better cooperation in the fight against terrorism by making use of Europe’s extensive liaison network, information systems, counterterrorism experts and analysts.” >>
