The European response and presence in the “war against terrorism” following the September 11th attacks on the US have been markedly ineffective. In order to meet the challenges of the 21st century, the EU must replace old stereotypes of cooperation and goodwill with a more realistic political-strategic culture of crisis management.
This report addresses these challenges by assessing a variety of issues related to an integrated European civil police force (EUCIVPOL). The text provides a comprehensive list of recommendations for achieving peace and stability, including suggestions for police deployment and state rehabilitation.
