In recent years, European countries have made significant changes to their domestic counter-terror laws and taken direct military action against Isis and other groups in the Middle East, North Africa, and the Sahel. Join us for a discussion on the extent to which European countries have adopted a US-style "war on terrorism" model, how far they continue to offer a different approach, and what impact the Trump presidency will have on transatlantic relations in counter-terrorism.

Anthony Dworkin is a senior policy fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations, working on human rights, democracy and justice, and is the author of the recent ECFR policy brief "Europe's New Counter-Terror Wars" (2016). He was formerly executive director of the Crimes of War Project.
