Policy Recommendations from Practice
Several European countries have experienced terrorist attacks in recent years. The attackers have claimed allegiance to a variety of ideologies, most commonly Islamist and right-wing ideologies. They have used a variety of methods and caused different degrees of damage, both psychological and material.
2021 marked 10 years since the terrorist attacks in Oslo and at Utøya 22 July 2011. There are important lessons to learn both from Norway and other countries’ experiences with educational responses to terrorist attacks, and the role of education in preventing extremism, ensuring democratic resilience.
