This chapter examines the legislative output of the European Union in terms of the Third Pillar and in relation to key legislative and agency developments in counter-terrorism and police co-operation. It considers the developing implementation gap which could undermine the European Union's claims to credibly ‘add value’ and evaluates the contribution of agencies such as Europol and Eurojust in counter-terrorism efforts. This chapter suggests that in comparison to the remainder of the Third Pillar's matters of common interest, counter-terrorism seems very much the poor relation both in terms of the quantity and quality of instruments used and the initial pre-September 11 plans for future development.
