INTERNATIONAL KEYNOTE ADDRESS: Brussels Airport – 3 years after the terrorist attacks

On the 22nd of March 2016, 16 people died and 141 were wounded during an Islamic State terrorist attack at Brussels Airport. The airport building was so badly damaged, it took weeks before it was operational again. As a result, a parliamentary enquiry commission was created to understand how this happened, and what the authorities at Brussels Airport could learn from moving forward. This session will cover:

  • The parliamentary enquiry commission, understanding how this happened
  • What were the key lessons learned, looking at the importance of community support in mitigating threats
  • Why continuous support is necessary for victims, and how the federal police at Brussels Airport continues to deliver this
  • What security measures have been introduced since March 2016
