This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book argues that it is important to evaluate the role of EU institutions for the process of European integration. It conceptualises the role of the different EU institutions, especially the European Commission, in the European integration process, with particular reference to the concepts of supranational policy entrepreneurship. The book investigates the construction of an Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ) in response to terrorism. It analyses the external dimension of counter-terrorism in the EU. It analyses the external dimension of asylum and migration, including border management. The book also investigates the role of EU institutional actors at the treaty level in the process of constructing an 'Area of Freedom, Security and Justice'.
