Author: HSD Foundation

On Monday 11 January,  politicians from more than 50 countries gathered in The Hague for a summit on counterterrorism. At the meeting, organised by the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF), intelligence sharing and  the prevention of  jihadist recruitment  were discussed. After the Nuclear Security Summit and Global Conference on CyberSpace 2015, it is yet another important international meeting on security cooperation taking place in The Hague. As radicalisation is again an important issue for peace and security, a conference on Radicalisation and Terrorism will be organised by ‘Studiecentrum voor Bedrijf en Overheid’ at the HSD Campus on the 31st of May 2016. Government, science and business experts, including Rob de Wijk (Strategic Advisor of HSD and Director of The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies), will share their insights on this topic.

The Netherlands is co-chair of the GCTF along with Turkey. The organisation was set up in 2011 on the initiative of the US government as a meeting point for counterintelligence experts from around the world.
