Abstract [en]

The EU has experienced several terrorist attacks by Islamic fundamentalists since 2004 on its

territory. Terrorism is threatening the fundamental rights that EU is based upon and has become

not only a question of security but also a question of internal and external border security. This

study seeks to examine the measures taken to fight terrorism by the EU and to see how terrorism

has affected the security-, foreign-, and defence policies. The study is a theory consuming

qualitative case study with both a descriptive and explanatory approach. The theoretical

framework that the study is based on are theories about normative power, soft power and hard

power but also the discussion about the external and internal security problem. The EU have

taken several measures and policies in the fight against terrorism. The measures and policies

are all influenced by the three theories in some way. The result of the study shows that EU has

went from using only soft instruments and normative ways in the fight against terrorism towards

harder instruments even if they still are using soft instruments in a harder way.
