Translated title of the contribution: The principle of Coherence’: : The EU facing the unsettled issues on fighting international terrorism.

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


    The international community is still looking for an universal agreed definition of transnational terrorism, applicable both in peacetime and in times of armed conflict. At UN's level exists a Draft Comprehensive Convention, but States have not yet overcome own conflicting views about freedom fighters. Thanks to its deep integration as regional organization, the EU could take a decisive position in the negotiations, especially towards Mediterranean countries thanks to Neighborhood
    and Development policies. The changes introduced by the Lisbon Treaty, with regard to external relations, may ensure a pivotal-role to the “principle of coherence and consistence”, strengthening the link between European internal policies and external actions.
