A judge with an international reputation, Jean-Louis Bruguière is the High Representative of the European Union in the United States for the fight against financing of terrorism. Until 2007, he was responsible for the supervision and coordination of the anti-terrorist section in Paris.
After observing the evolution and the typology of international terrorist threats, Jean-Louis Bruguière will stress the necessity for trans-Atlantic cooperation. Particular attention should be given to the use of modern means of communication by terrorist networks, for example, Al-Qaeda’s use of the Internet for propaganda for operational purposes.
