This chapter examines the megapolicy objectives of the Third Pillar related to counter-terrorism and police co-operation. It addresses the issues of achieving an agreed and nationally implemented common definition of terrorism across all the member states and the development of Europol as the main vehicle for police co-operation within the European Union (EU). The analysis reveals that in the case of police co-operation, the narrative tends to zigzag from position to position, depending on who is addressing the issue of interpreting the legal text. In the case of counter terrorism, there was, in effect, the sound of silence over the key issue of agreeing a common definition of terrorism and a common definition existed solely on paper, and not in reality.
