Over the last decade, counterterrorism in Europe has increasingly been underpinned by soft preventive measures of counter-radicalisation, exit and disengagement. However, in a context of liberal democracies, new illiberal practices of counterterrorism have similarly been introduced and gained new salience. This panel adopts a comparative approach to unpack the recent evolution of both CVE (countering violent extremism) and CT (counterterrorism) in a European context. Combining fieldwork experiences with theoretically informed approaches (dispositif, subversion, assemblage etc.), the scholars in this panel will address particular cases in France, Belgium, Spain, Denmark and the Netherlands but also throw light on their transnational entanglements.
