US - EU Counterterrorism Cooperation Report

"The September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks gave new momentum to the European Union (EU) initiative to improve law enforcement cooperation against terrorism both among its 25 member states and with the United States. Washington has largely welcomed these efforts, recognizing that they may help root out terrorist cells and prevent future attacks. However, the United States and the EU face several challenges as they seek to promote closer cooperation in the police, judicial, and border control fields."

On July 12, 2005, The Library of Congress, Congressional Research Service, released an updated report entitled U.S. - EU Cooperation Against Terrorism. This updated report provides background information on EU efforts against terrorism, it describes the progress to date on US-EU counterterrorism cooperation, it discusses ongoing challenges facing both the US and the EU, and it identifies US issues and perspectives for our Congress.
