Europol - An Unusual Degree of International Security Actorness in its Counter-Terrorism Relations
This article offers an analysis of Europol’s security actorness in the external dimension of EU counter-terrorism. While Europol has attracted some scholarly attention, not so much work has focused on the meaning of its international agreements in counter-terrorism. This article aims to investigate the international actorness of Europol at the international level in relation to the fight against international terrorism. It offers original conceptual insights based on empirical case studies of international agreements: Europol agreements with US law enforcement, as well as Europol agreements with countries in the European Neighbourhood policy.
