Few subjects are as important for Europe’s policy makers than to find new ways for governments to work better together as well as with business and civil society to protect citizens, infrastructure and economies from terrorism. The terrorist attacks in Madrid on March 11, 2004 and London on July 7, 2005 were vivid reminders that not enough has been done. In many ways, the European Union’s response to these terrorist attacks was multifarious in approach, reflecting the existing structure of the Union and the limitations of policy integration when it comes to the more sensitive issues of defense and security. The looming question is one of how European integration can proceed while ensuring that a more effective European security policy is developed.
