Strengths and weaknesses of the European Union in the fight against jihadist terrorism since 2015.- Selene Pisabarro García.

The European Union has faced different challenges in Security along its history, although it is fighting against a new type of jihadist terrorism, different from Al Qaeda, since 2015. For the first time, terrorists attacked France in name of Daesh and, since then, they have committed many attacks in Europe that have left a lot of victims. Because of this, this Institution has intensified its efforts to approve different legislation to develop new mechanisms with the aim of avoiding criminal activity and more attacks in Europe. There are also some obstacles, such as Security is a shared competence with the Member States. Despite all the difficulties, the European Union should continue strengthen the procedures to prevent further jihadist attacks.
