On Wednesday, March 22, a solo actor drove a vehicle into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before slamming into the northern perimeter fence of the UK Parliament. Wielding a knife, he then fatally wounded a police officer before being stopped by police gunfire. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) went on to claim the attacker as one of its “soldiers.”
Paris, Nice, Berlin, Brussels, and now London. These events have prompted states of emergency, security reviews, reactionary violence against minorities, and the rise of far-right groups in Europe.
Join YPFP’s Combating Terrorism Working Group for a moderated NextGen discussion assessing the consequences of these attacks on Western Europe and methods to respond to and prepare for emerging and evolving asymmetric threats.
The International Student House would like to extend a special invitation to the members of YPFP for a special discussion with Congressman Gregory Meeks (NY-5).
Congressman Meeks is the Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats, and he will speak on the role of Congress in the formulation of U.S. foreign policy with moderator John Tanner, former Congressman for Tennessee's 8th District.
Please note that space is limited.
Congressman Gregory Meeks has served the people of New York's 5th Congressional District during his 17-year tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives. Congressman Meeks sits on the House Financial Services Committee and the Foreign Affairs Committee.
Mr. John Tanner represented Tennessee’s 8th Congressional District from 1989 to 2011. He served as the Democrats' chief deputy whip in the 109th, 110th, and 111th Congresses. His committee assignments included House Ways and Means, Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, and Science.
