This chapter analyses the Third Pillar in order to establish the broader context in which the European Union's (EU) progress in counter-terrorism and police co-operation is made. It examines the proposed establishment of an ‘Area of Freedom, Security and Justice’, which has been the overall objective of all internal security co-operation since the Treaty of Amsterdam. This chapter suggests that the AFSJ failed to address fully the concerns of the Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) at the institutional level and argues that it will take significantly more political will than thus far been on show to overcome some of the outstanding conceptual questions regarding how the AFSJ can be successfully implemented.

Keywords:   Third Pillar, European Union, counter-terrorism, police co-operation, AFSJ, internal security co-operation, JHA
