[From the Introduction]. Justice and Home Affairs was one of the fields on the spotlight for the Laeken Council. Not only a mid-term review of the progress achieved in the creation of an area of freedom, security and justice since the Tampere Council would take place, and guidelines issued on the further steps to take, but also because, since the events of September 11th, this area has understandably deserved a lot of attention from the EU Institutions, the press and the public in general. Following those tragic events, a Special Council was held in Brussels on 21st September and a Plan of Action was approved, identifying measures urged to be taken on the fight against terrorism, covering several policy areas. An Extraordinary Justice and Home Affairs Council Meeting had taken place a day before, where detailed Conclusions were approved, ranging judicial cooperation in criminal matters and police cooperation, but also including implications on external border controls.
