Last week, the Counter-Terrorism Preparedness Network (CTPN) published four strategic reports aiming to share the knowledge and experience acquired by major European cities around protection and preparedness against terrorism. The report was launched by the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, in the company of network partners.
Professor Marie-Christine Therrien and two Cité-ID researchers, Joris Arnaud and Julie-Maude Normandin, contributed to the report on strategic coordination in the event of a terrorist attack. The report presents scientific knowledge along with the strategic coordination initiatives of six European cities, and offers a number of recommendations. The report was written in collaboration with four practitioners specialized in resilience and crisis management: Stockholm’s chief resilience coordinator, the chief of policy in Stockholm, as well as a manager and an employee from the London Resilience Group.
The Counter-Terrorism Preparedness Network was created by the City of London in 2018. It brings together strategic leaders, practitioners and academics to influence cities’ public policies and practices around resilience and protection against terrorism. The network includes the cities of Barcelona, London, Manchester, Paris, Rotterdam and Stockholm, as well as seven academic partners, including the ENAP’s Cité-ID LivingLab. Additional reports address de-radicalisation, community preparedness and humanitarian assistance.
