Reviews
Review Quotes
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

Summaries
Long Description
The new security challenges that have arisen as a result of the rise in prominence of global terrorism have presented the European Union with a unique opportunity to rebrand itself as dominant force on the international stage. Traditionally viewed as a weak actor, it efforts to promote intelligence-sharing and by instituting wide-ranging cooperation between national police forces have ensured that the EU is well-placed to combat the challenges posed by global terrorism and have given it renewed vigour as an international actor. Through contributions from experts on the EU and global security, this book discusses the measures taken by the European Union to counter terrorism at a both national and global level as well as drawing wider conclusions on the nature and success of the confederation as an international security actor focusing specifically on JHA policy. This volume provides an original and much needed contribution to the literature on EU security governance at the global level.
