[Introduction]. Prior to the creation of the Third Pillar on Justice and Home Affairs Cooperation (JHA) in the Treaty on European Union (TEU), a plethora of working groups and fora dealt with different issues, ranging from drugs to illegal immigration, and from terrorism to customs cooperation. With the formalization of Justice and Home Affairs under the Third Pillar, EU Member States have acknowledged the need for an intergovernmental approach to problems and issues that can no longer be countered merely at national level. Moreover, the Member States have shown a long-term commitment to cooperation in this field by outlining policy strategies and proposals. This article aims to provide an update of the current issues dominating the debate within the Third Pillar, ranging from institutional and organizational issues to more substantial issues such as the activities that have been developed.
