EIN Policy Roundtable on Terrorism and Security

EIN POLICY ROUNDTABLE ON
TERRORISM AND SECURITY

ANTHONY GLEES, RAPPORTEUR

Conclusions

This important meeting of WG9, chaired by Jaime Mayor Oreja, benefited from the presence of outstanding speakers: Franco Frattini, Gilles de Kerchove, Rafael Nieto Loiaza and Walid Phares.

It underscored two overarching issues: the ongoing work to define the ideology of Jihadism (essential for making effective policy) and the primacy of the EPP-ED’s relationship, especially in his field, with the USA. WG9 reaffirmed that the commitment to work for a strong Trans-Atlantic partnership remains, whoever becomes the next US President. Indeed, this commitment has been strengthened since 30 April 2008 when the chair of WG9 and other members met in the Library of Congress in Washington DC to formally establish the Trans-Atlantic Legislative Group on Counter-Terrorism together with Congresswoman Sue Myrick (R) and Congressman Bud Kramer (D).
