EU Justice Commissioner Věra Jourová spoke in part about the EU response to the November 13 Paris attacks during a speech she gave at the Brookings Institution, a think tank in Washington, D.C.

She called on the EU to fight discrimination and also said that prisons must be prevented from becoming a breeding ground for radicalization.

“These brutal attacks – killing from what we know now 129 people – were an attack against our freedoms, our way of life, and our values of tolerance and peaceful coexistence,” she said.

“It is precisely these values that we will defend. We shall not be guided by fear and we must not let the attackers disrupt our lives. Instead we shall be resolute in our response to terrorism and hatred,” she added.
