The proposition of the European Commission to cooperate with third countries to fight terrorism and serious organised crime

The European Commission released a report proposing to strengthen Europol’s cooperation with third countries in order to fight terrorism and other serious transnational crime more effectively. 

The 11th Security Union Report contains a set of operational and practical measures to better defend EU citizens against terrorist threats and deliver a Europe that protects. The measures aim to address vulnerabilities exposed by recent attacks and will support Member States in protecting public spaces and help deprive terrorists of the means to act. The Commission is also proposing to further strengthen the EU’s external action on counter-terrorism, including through Europol. 

Measures include: 
– Increased financial support by providing 18,5 million euro from the Internal Security Fund and 100 million euro from the Urban Innovative Actions
– New guidance material to help Member States address a wide range of issues related to the protection of public spaces and raising public awareness
– Exchange of best practices
– Improving cooperation between local actors and the private sector.
