This monograph surveys the achievements of the European Union in the field of Justice and Home Affairs and analyses the pro’s and con’s of setting up an area of freedom, security and justice. The inter-connections between internal and external security issues are carefully examined – both from a practical and institutional point of view-and consideration is given to how to avoid excessive “securitisation” of society. It argues for the need to take an integrated approach towards these issues in order to ensure that the right balance is actually being struck between these three dimensions.
