    Abstract

    Investigations into the London attacks of 7/7 have yet to clarify the intricate storyline of the bombings. Yet the EU has already proposed specific measures to fight against international terrorism through policies that, unfortunately, compound the difficulty of addressing the challenge. This Policy Brief critically examines these measures following the EU Council’s 13 July Declaration on the EU Response to the London Bombings. CEPS Research Fellows Thierry Balzacq and Sergio Carrera argue that if the freedom and justice dimensions are not set at the centre of EU policies developing an Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, human rights and civil liberties may be endangered and finally lost to the exceptional security demands.
