Orlando Rodriguez of Fordham University reviews The European Union and Internal Security. Guardian of the People? by Valsamis Mitsilegas, Jorg Monar, and Wyn Rees. Valsamis Mitsilegas, Jorg Monar, and Wyn Rees show that during the post-Cold war period new security threats have arisen in Western Europe. Amongst these, organized crime and illegal immigration are acknowledged to represent significant security challenges. The European Union and Internal Security analyses the nature of these challenges and investigates how the EU has been evolving to counter them. Written by experts in the fields of political science and law, this book addresses a hitherto neglected area of study.
