Chapter Summary

This chapter revisits counter-terrorism cooperation between the European Union (EU) and United Nations (UN). Despite the different actors and issues involved, multilateral approaches have been successfully applied. The chapter firstly compares the institutional frameworks and related counter-terrorism strategies of the two international organisations (IOs). In a brief overview, the development by each organisation of counter-terrorism initiatives according to their own views and necessities is explained. Secondly, different modes of multilateral counter-terrorism governance are examined. The focus in this regard is on the manner in which the EU interacts with UN partners, both in formal and informal settings. Thirdly, the chapter turns to a discussion on substantive interactions between key policies and norms. Three critical issues have been selected to examine how the EU influences topical debates at the global level: the streamlining of counter-terrorism action, the definition of terrorism and the sanctioning of terrorists and terrorist groups.

Keywords: European Union (EU); international organization (IO); multilateral counter-terrorism governance; United Nations (UN)
