Written by Jacqueline Gordon on . Posted in Academic news, Events

Olivier Roy, Joint Chair RSCAS and Chair in Mediterranean Studies at the European University Institute (EUI) will participate in a panel discussion, Unis contre le terrorisme (united against terrorism), at the Institut Francais in Florence on Friday this week. The panel will discuss the threat posed by global jihadism as well as steps which could be taken to combat it.

Held in the wake of the dramatic events in Brussels and Paris, the conference is a timely exploration of the motivations behind jihadist terror in today’s global milieu.

Roy will be joined by Andrea Manciulli, President of the Italian Delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, and Sandro Bertuccelli, managing editor of La Repubblica Firenze.

The discussion will be held in French with Italian translation.

The conference takes place on Friday 8th April 2016 at 6pm and is free to attend.
