Description Project Objectives: The overall objective is twofold. First, we will analyse the nature and significance of the evolving threat of trans-national terrorism to the European Union and its individual Member States. Based on this, we will examine the appropriateness and effectiveness of response options aimed at dealing with these threats and their impacts.

Project Description: Considering the ongoing integration of Europe, a Union-level strategy towards trans-national terrorism is imperative. In support of the formulation of such a strategy, this project will study the conceptual nature of the problems and the possible measures flowing from its findings. This project will conduct of a structured survey of the response options to trans-national terrorism and their respective assumptions. Both policy-areas specifically dealing with terrorism as well as affected policy-fields are taken into account.

The project is unique in that it integrates diverse aspects of the issue into one comprehensive and multidisciplinary project. The main added value of the project will lie in the benchmarking of approaches and policy-options in use in the various Member States. Combined with the project's conceptual underpinnings, it will yield insights into the suitability and effectiveness of various approaches and measures from national and European perspectives, the relevant ethical issues, and cost-benefit considerations.

Expected results:
- an overview of the varying conceptual views on terrorism and its diverging role in the European security discourse, and to advice on how to deal with these divergences;
- a better insight into the societal and economic costs of (counter-) terrorism;
- an analysis and benchmark of the numerous policies set up across Europe;
- the detection of gaps in the policy where counter-terrorism measures are inadequate;
- a tool to track changes in policy and societal discourse on terrorism.
