Counter-Terrorism in Europe: The impact of the Polish-German intelligence cooperation since 2004
Supervisor: prof. dr hab. Artur Gruszczak
Dissertation project description:
The aim of this project is to determine what kind of cooperation has been established between Germany and Poland in terms of information exchange and intelligence sharing in the country’s respective intelligence agencies. In addition to the intelligence agencies, an equal look will be taken at information exchange and intelligence sharing between law enforcement agencies in Germany and Poland. All of this will be analysed from a theoretical background of a realist perspective. This will lead to an analysis of how the fight against terrorist threats to Germany and Poland in particular has been facilitated. The main hypothesis of the thesis is that the intelligence cooperation between the two countries has been expedited through a mutual understanding of terrorism as a common threat endangering national security and challenging regional cooperation in Europe. This means that the framework of the multi-and bilateral agreements within the European Union -acting as a multinational exchange network – expedites and promotes the processes of counter-terrorism.
