Issued shortly after the anniversary of 9/11 and with renewed interest in how the new European External Action Service will change the EU’s foreign affairs priorities, this EPC Issue Paper by Peter Wennerholm, Erik Brattberg and Mark Rhinard, of The Swedish Institute of International Affairs, discusses the EU’s role in preventing the growth of counter-terrorism abroad in five key countries, where the security situation remains fragile. It discovers common shortcomings, and suggests measures for strengthening the effectiveness of counter-terrorism abroad among EU Member States, European institutions and the international community.
