Abstract: Terrorism activities within the EU are essentially transnational. Given that counter-terrorism operations and prosecutions have been allocated to different actors in different EU member states, operating within quite differing legal provisions and systems, co-ordination by the EU in this area is to be welcomed. In addition to critically examining the new EU laws in this area, this paper focuses on legal framework for the interaction of police, security services, and judiciary across Europe in this task, to include Europol and Schengen provisions. It also pays particular attention to the divergent positions of the UK and Ireland within this framework.
Description: This article operates as an introduction to the EU legal provisions on terrorism, to include, not just its content, but also its very important legal context. The potential for the development of this very important area of law is hampered by the legal framework within which it operates, and the variety of actors operating in this field at an EU level. This paper is addressed to an audience who is familiar with the policy area of terrorism, but is perhaps less familiar with the EU legal provisions and legal framework in this area.
