Just before the coronavirus hit Europe hard, we had the great pleasure to meet up again with Mitchell Belfer and his crew in Prague, attending his roundtable on « Europe in Middle East Conflicts », organised by his very own Euro-Gulf Information Centre (EGIC).
Since then, we’ve had the pleasure to participate in EGIC’s online roundtable on « Coping with Coronavirus – Euro-Gulf Perspectives » on March 19th, 2020, from 11 am-12 pm.
« Yan St-Pierre—Unfortunately terrorism has not stopped due to the isolation and extremism has not disappeared just because there is suddenly a pandemic virus: it has actually sharpened in various ways.

Since then, EGIC has kept busy and already planned a second event in the series, dealing with « Terrorism in the Time of Coronavirus« . This event will take place online on March 31st, 2020, 11 am-12:30 pm (CET).
