Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademic


This paper explores the impact of constitutional law reasoning for understanding European security regulation. When the European Union (EU) seeks to ensure a high level of security in Europe, it does so mainly through measures taken within a policy area called the “Area of Freedom, Security and Justice” (AFSJ). This paper is mainly focused on the constitutional dimension of the AFSJ and the idea that the EU is actively engaged in European security matters which have global implications. The paper looks at the impact of constitutionalism in the AFSJ by considering several intertwined questions in the domain of counter-terrorism, data protection, and tensions with surveillance matters.
