CEPOL is pleased to announce the publication of the Liber amicorum La lutte contre le terrorisme : ses acquis et ses défis / The fight against terrorism: achievements and challenges, in honour of the EU counter-terrorism coordinator Mr Gilles de Kerchove. De Kerchove is a seminal figure in the field of counter-terrorism. Over the course of his long and distinguished career, he has significantly shaped initiatives and used his position to the maximum to make a tangible difference to EU counter-terrorism policy. The book, which takes stock of the achievements made in the field of counter-terrorism in recent years and the challenges ahead, includes an academic contribution from CEPOL Executive Director, Dr. h. c. Detlef Schröder; CEPOL Research and Knowledge Management Officer, Dr. Detlef Nogala; and former CEPOL Head of Unit International Cooperation, Dr. Stefano Failla.

Under the title Training Contra Terror(ism): CEPOL’s contribution in a European law enforcement perspective, the three authors elaborate on the relevance of the training and capacity building as one component of the EU counter terrorism strategy and the importance of building partnerships with third countries to contribute to the advancement of the EU’s policies in the area of internal and external security.

The well-renowned international authors of this publication come from various parts of the world and present a wide range of profiles, including prominent political figures, EU officials, academics, magistrates and journalists. The book was coordinated by Dr. Christiane Höhn, Principal Advisor to Gilles de Kerchove; Isabel Saavedra, his Personal Assistant; and Prof. Anne Weyembergh, Professor at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB).
