Fighting Terrorism and Drugs: Europe and International Police Cooperation
This area of my website provides background on my book Fighting Terrorism and Drugs: Europe and International Police Cooperation (London and New York: Routledge, 2008).
The book is about international police cooperation against terrorism and drugs. The current situation is compared to the situation in the 1960s and 1970s. The analytical focus is on the policy preferences of the four largest Western European states: Britain, France, Germany, and Italy.
Here is the main research question of the book: What makes states in general, and large European states in particular, willing or unwilling to cooperate with other states in the fight against terrorism and drugs?
The website provides tables with the descriptive and explanatory data as used in the book, including comments on the reasons for coding. All data were established in the context of a research project based at International University Bremen, Germany. You can access the data here.
Codebooks with important background information, as well as the datasets in SPSS and Excel format, are available as downloads. For a full understanding of the data and the underlying research design, you should consult a copy of the book.
