Justice, Home Affairs and Security

European and International Institutional and Policy Development

By Gert Vermeulen, Wendy De Bondt

This book offers insight into the historical, institutional, and topical development of the EU policy in the areas of justice, home affairs, and security, well-embedded in a broader international context. The main part of the book, dedicated to the EU, is therefore preceded by a part on relevant cooperation on the Benelux and Schengen levels and followed by a section on cooperation in the areas concerned on Council of Europe, NATO, OSCE, G8, OECD, and UN levels. Without a proper understanding of those cooperation levels, the development and functioning of the EU would be hard to fully grasp. Before addressing the actual policy dimension, all sections begin with a historical introduction and a sketch of institutional structures and functioning. Relevant and insightful, the book will be of interest to students and professionals in criminology, law, and political science, as well as anyone interested in European and international criminal policy.
