Terrorism a global phenomenon mandating a unified international response

During his keynote speech, Professor Olivier Roy, Chair in Mediterranean Studies at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies and the Political and Social Sciences Department, presented his theory that the global phenomenon of jihadi terrorism is distinct from the conflicts in the Middle East and not a form of ‘spill-over’ from those conflicts.He said that the conflicts currently playing out in the Middle East were rooted in the history and the dynamics of that region.w=300" data-large-file="https://libraryeuroparl.files.wordpress.com/2016/06/20160614_ep-037873a_bbo_296.jpg? w=750" src="https://libraryeuroparl.files.wordpress.com/2016/06/20160614_ep-037873a_bbo_296.jpg? w=245&h=163" width="245" height="163" data-original-width="245" data-original-height="163" itemprop=" title="EP-EUI Roundtable : transformations in the Middle East - The EU's response" alt="EP-EUI Roundtable : transformations in the Middle East - The EU's response" style="width: 245px; height: 163px;" / EP-EUI Roundtable : transformations in the Middle East – The EU’s response " data-medium-file="https://libraryeuroparl.files.wordpress.com/2016/06/20160614_ep-037873a_bbo_347.jpg?

Ms Favier highlighted the gap between the situation on the ground in Syria and the efforts of the international community to put an end to the conflict.

She also spoke of the strategic errors of the anti-ISIS coalition, which could spawn new armed conflict along sectarian and ethnic lines.

Ms Favier noted that Syrians wanted the EU to play a political role in the crisis, rather than just provide humanitarian aid.
