|28th Session of the Congress - 24 to 26 March 2015
Jean-Claude Frécon: “Democracies must act urgently to combat terrorism”
In his communication at the opening of the 28th session, the President of the Congress, Jean-Claude Frécon, referred to the acts of terrorism committed recently in several cities by young extremists. “Cities and regions must implement effective preventive and law enforcement measures to ensure that the radicalisation of a few of their citizens does not become a permanent threat to the majority”, he stressed. He said that, as part of an overall Council of Europe action plan, the Congress had drawn up a strategy proposing activities to be implemented with national governments, local authorities and regions in the short, medium and long term.
