Paris attacks

The Executive Board of Maastricht University is deeply shocked by the attacks in Paris. Our thoughts go out to the French people, families and friends of the victims of these horrifying acts of violence and to our French students and employees. We speak on behalf of our academic community, which shares the common principles of freedom, democracy, and human values. We sympathize with everyone who is affected by this tragedy.  

Furthermore, we want to bring attention to the possibility of signing the book of condolences: www.condoleance.nl/15656/slachtoffers-terreuraanslagen-parijs.html
