Many VUB and ULB colleagues contributed to this volume including Christian Kaunert, Christof Roos, Paul de Hert, Anne Weyembergh, Ramona Coman and Julien Jeandesboz. The volume comes at a timely moment.Justice and home affairs is one of the fastest expanding areas of research in European Studies. The European response to security concerns such as terrorism, organised crime networks, and drug trafficking as well as to the challenge of managing migration flows are salient topics of interest to an increasing number of scholars of all disciplines, the media and general public.
