This chapter analyses the Treaty of European Union (TEU) labelling of the threat posed by terrorism as a ‘matter of common interest’ for all EU member states in terms of the scale of threat posed and the nature of the terrorist challenge. It considers the long-running campaigns of nationalist-separatist groups, as well as the various right-wing and left-wing variants. This chapter suggests that there is a need to balance the avoidance of complacency with the maintenance of accuracy when portraying the nature of the wider threat and argues that it is also important not to simply accept at face value the assumption of a region-wide, let alone, global threat.
