Following the Paris attacks of Nov 13, Europe has been on edge. Army and armed police presence on the streets is becoming the new normal as European leaders ponder on even more security measures including air strikes in Syria. The social impact of the attacks at home has clearly been high as day to day life has been seriously disrupted and fear amongst the public is growing.
