Chapter Summary

The first demonstration of the European Union's (EUs) formal interest in terrorism-related matters, beyond political condemnations came in July 1999, when EUROPOL, the European Office for Police Coordination created an Antiterrorist Unit in charge of coordinating and exchanging information from all the national police forces in EU member states. EU foreign policy has included mixed agreements such as the December 2002 agreements between Europol and the US intelligence agencies, FBI and CIA, and with other agreements with Arab countries, Russia etc. The fact that European Union counter-terrorism measures are interrelated makes them difficult to classify. There are several proposals from the Commission for a Council Decision to allow the relevant services such as Europol and Eurojust access to the fullest, most up-to-date information. The European Union had certainly established combating terrorism as a priority objective and this was reaffirmed after September 11 2001.
