This chapter considers first fifteen years of internal security co-operation, both within the Third Pillar more widely and more specifically in terms of developments in police co-operation and counter terrorism. It suggests that despite the positive record found in terms of Europol's development, the EU's wider record of converting its occasionally inflated rhetoric into practical reality is sadly insubstantial. This chapter highlights the lack of clarity in the objectives of police co-operation and counter terrorism and the difference between means and ends in relation to the development of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ). It speculates on the future of the Third Pillar and suggests that EU should work towards steadying the existing foundations of internal security co-operation and building both greater credibility and legitimacy in this area.
