Abstract: 
On November 17, 2015, the European Commission published a document aimed at explaining the state of play regarding the European Agenda on Security. The document begins by recalling that the Commission had adopted the European Agenda on Security on April 28, 2015, setting out the main actions envisaged by the Commission to ensure an effective EU response to terrorism and security threats in the European Union over the period 2015-2020. The Agenda identified three priorities: tackling terrorism and preventing radicalization, disrupting organized crime, and fighting cybercrime.
