Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Member States' use of the inter-governmental machinery of the European Political Co-operation (EPC) for areas of co-operation other than foreign policy. These include judicial co-operation and co-operation on anti-terrorism and national security. The judicial co-operation brings together representatives of the Ministries of Justice of Member States with the objective of moving towards a single European judicial area. The co-operation among security authorities and police takes place in a separate framework called the Trevi. For anti-terrorism initiatives, the EPC has its own Working Group on Terrorism.
