Alexandra De Moor (2010)
abstract
This paper serves as a building block in the process of writing a doctoral thesis in law (working title: Europol, quo vadis? Critical analysis and evaluation of the development of the European Police Office). Based in The Hague (The Netherlands), Europol is the European Union (EU) law enforcement agency that handles criminal intelligence. Its formal objective, as laid down in the Europol Council Decision, is to “to support and strenghten action by the competent authorities of the Member States and their mutual cooperation in preventing and combating organised crime, terrorism and other forms of serious crime affecting two or more Member States”. To be in a position to collect and connect information from different sources, Europol has over the years concluded numerous operational agreements (including the exchange of personal data) and strategic agreements (not including the exchange of personal data) with EU bodies as well as with third States and organisations. This paper is a case study on the cooperation between Europol and the United States. It considers the political, legal and operational aspects of the cooperative relations between the EU law enforcement agency and its counterparts in the US. Following research methods are used: an analysis of relevant legal and policy documents, a study of relevant literature and a targeted series of interviews with key figures.
