About this book

The EU has long been seen as confederation that has failed to assert itself effectively on the international stage. In this collection, a series of experts discuss how the EU has shed its reputation as a weak international actor in light of its policies on police cooperation and intelligence-sharing as part of the global effort to combat terrorism

Reviews

The EU's expanding role in the internal security domain has a national, a European and a global dimension. This book manages to convincingly analyse and inter-relate all three of these dimensions. It also provides a multi-faceted lucid assessment of intelligence-sharing as a fundamental challenge, and this well beyond counterterrorism cooperation. A must-read for anyone interested in European and global internal security policy responses.'

Jörg Monar, Director of Political and Administrative Studies, College of Europe, Belgium

'This book is a welcome addition to the academic literature on European counterterrorism and security. It provides important insights on the evolution of European security policy and a welcome analytical focus on the relatively under-researched topic of the role of intelligence in European security. It is highly recommended reading for policy makers, academics and researchers in the fields of European security politics, law and policy.'

Valsamis Mitsilegas, Head of the Department of Law, Queen Mary University of London, UK

European Security, Terrorism and Intelligence provides a major contribution to understanding the role of the European Union in combating terrorism. Written by an impressive array of experts from across the European academy, the collection is essential reading for those concerned with the wider European context of intelligence-sharing and police co-operation.

- Len Scott, Department of Interantional Politics, Aberswyth University, UK
