Hilde Vautmans MEP discusses the role of collaboration between European countries in responding to domestic terror threats

Over the past couple of years there has been a sharp increase in the number of terror attacks being carried out in European countries. Incidents in Paris, Brussels, London and elsewhere have put domestic security services under pressure and even caused some to question the security of the Schengen Area. Because many such attacks have been planned and carried out by individuals in isolation, rather than by networks of extremists, they are more difficult to prevent.

In response, countries have stepped up their efforts, and sought to improve communication among European member states so as to lend more resources to those places more at risk. Yet, more could be done to encourage collaboration and co-operation between Europe’s countries and police forces.

Hilde Vautmans MEP is a member of the European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Security and Defence. She answered PEN’s questions on how attacks by radicalised individuals differ from those planned by terror networks, the role of police as the first line of defence against such attacks, and the ways in which Europe on the whole can respond to or prevent incidents in any of its member states.
