"I’ve been collaborating with the Atlantic Treaty Association  since last year in my capacity as counter-terrorism expert and strategic adviser of the Commissioner general of the Belgian Federal Police. Having experienced terrorism at first hand through the Belgian connection with the Paris attacks, and the attacks on Brussels as well, I can only underline that ATA has shown leadership in creating the right and comprehensive platforms for exchange of knowledge between a wide and balanced spectrum of stakeholders, active in the fight against terrorism and radicalisation. ATA has also shown vision in understanding the need for a “co-production” of counter-terrorism, taking into account not only law enforcement but also civil society, academic and military players. Due to various initiatives, from Jordan to Brussels,  ATA has been able to bring about a tangible added-value and contributed to materialize an adequate network of game changers."

"The Atlantic Treaty Association is a leader in security and defense policy-development across the Euro-Atlantic, stimulating an effective transfer of best practices across countries, generations and civil society. I had the privilege of collaborating with ATA in a NATO program on Critical Energy Infrastructure Protection Against Emerging Security Challenges. The high level of speakers and participants made this forum unique and very rewarding for all parties involved. Collaborating with the ATA is extremely beneficial."
