Global Re-ordering: Evolution through European Networks
The University of Warwick is part of a major project entitled GR:EEN. GR:EEN is a global collaborative research project (16 institutions) engaged in academic research that impacts upon EU Policy and practice, seeking to define the role of the EU in the emerging global order. The latest publication from this project is a policy brief that analyses counterterror policies and discourses within the EU and across three EU Member States – the United Kingdom, Germany and France – in order to show the place of the human security concept in the language of counterterrorism policy making.
The report finds that in spite of greater emphasis on cooperation in the field of counterterrorism and the existing aspirations of human security, both the EU and members states fail to place human security at the centre of strategic dialogue on counter terrorism because at the member state level the security of the state is still prioritised and enthusiasm at the EU level has waned.
