The European Union

The European Union is committed to countering the threat of Daesh and has adopted a wide and comprehensive set of measures to do so. The EU’s participation as a non-military partner in the Global Coalition to counter Daesh has increased cooperation with countries in the region on counterterrorism, and has led to the development of a large range of projects on counter radicalisation, domestic and border security.

"The European Union is engaged in very concrete terms on the ground, but we all know very well that, in this aspect of the fight, military power will not be enough to defeat Daesh. Military alone will not solve the crisis, either in Syria or elsewhere."

Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission
