New publication out now: The Routledge Handbook on the European Neighbourhood Policy

The Routledge Handbook on the European Neighbourhood Policy offers a comprehensive review of the EU’s relations with its Eastern and Southern Neighbourhood. In the chapter “Counter-terrorism cooperation and the European Neighbourhood Policy”, Dr. Chantal Lavallée, Project Researcher at the IES and Prof. Christian Kaunert, together with Dr. Sarah Léonard from the VUB’s Vesalius College, examine how the EU has attempted to develop counter-terrorism cooperation with its Eastern and Southern partners and which results have been achieved so far in practice. IES Prof. Florian Trauner co-authored the handbook’s chapter on migration policy, an area that has moved to the centre of the EU’s neighbourhood policy.They start by locating counter-terrorism in the broader context of the EU’s security policies, and then examine the EU’s cooperation in counter-terrorism with its neighbours. While this cooperation has hitherto remained very limited, the authors identify the obstacles and offer some hands-on conclusions.
