10 - The EU and International Terrorism

from III - Internal Security


Since 2015, there has been a sea change in the scope and depth of cooperation in the EU on counter-terrorism (CT). Although the issue has been on the EU’s policy agenda since 9/11, the string of terrorist attacks that have occurred since early 2015 have prompted a series of political initiatives that have transformed the EU’s presence in the field.1 The politics have been mirrored by public opinion: Eurobarometer polls show that 82% of EU citizens want the EU to do more on security and counter-terrorism.
