On 11 March, the European Commission and the Radicalisation Awareness Network Centre of Excellence are organising a dedicated event to mark the 12th European Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Terrorism. Dimitris Avramopoulos, Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, will open the Brussels event, which brings together victims from recent and past terrorist attacks, victim associations, students, and high-level European dignitaries. The programme features testimonies from victims of attacks at the Bataclan, Paris, and in Spain, Norway, and Tunisia.

11 March marks the 12th anniversary of the Madrid train bombings that killed 191 and injured at least 1 800 people commuting to work. The European Union, together with the Radicalisation Awareness Network Centre of Excellence, has devoted 11 March to commemorating the victims of terrorist attacks in Europe and elsewhere in the world.
