The European Union is becoming more and more involved with security matters : international security within the framework of its Common Foreign and Security Policy and European Security and Defence Policy, internal security with the creation of its Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, as well as the growing security requirements in the Community's policies on food, maritime, social and consumer protection issues, or more recently, civil protection and energy supplies.

More than an overview of the different aspects of security that the EU is dealing with, whether internal or external, this book also considers issues at stake: the growing inroads that the EU is making into the traditional States' prerogatives, the use of new forms of intervention and governance that favours the agencies, the balance which is sometimes delicate with regard to the fundamental rights of citizens and the principle of democracy.

Following the opening of negotiations on Turkey’s entry into the European Union, this book proposes to analyse Euro-Turkish relations by way of a dynamic approach focussing on the notion of challenge. The particularly numerous challenges posed by a possible Turkish entry are grouped together in three chapters in which are successively addressed: (geo)political  and institutional challenges, human and social challenges and, lastly, economic and commercial challenges. The main objective of the book, intended for academics as well as professionals and students, is to offer a multidisciplinary approach (by  experts in law, economics and political science) to relations that began in 1963 with the drawing up of the Ankara agreement, which provided for the setting up of a customs union and already envisaged a possible entry of Turkey.
The contributors have sought, first and foremost, to identify not only different possible scenarios but also the main problems that will arise in the course of a negotiation process that should not be concluded until 2014.

Jean Raux has had a prestigious career, which saw him set up the Rennes Centre for European Research, lecture at the European College in Bruges and teach students taking various international master’s degrees, as well as preside over the CEDECE and play a prominent role within the network of Jean Monnet European chairs…This Liber Amicorum is also the work of his pupils, whom he was able to propel towards academic careers or high-ranking posts in the European or French civil service. They all treasure memories of how the master initiated them into methods of Community law analysis, especially the teleo-systematic method. It was through this reading method that he encouraged generations of undergraduate and postgraduate students to unravel the often arcane realities of the European Union. It throws light on the present, makes it possible to grasp the Union’s motivations, and to foresee its evolution.

It is therefore only logical that this Liber Amicorum should focus on the principles underlying the very essence of European law, grouped together round the four axes that have deeply structured Jean Raux’s powerful and forward-looking reflection on the constitutionalising of the Union (citizenship, governance, territories)  as well as on its external initiatives (specific principles and projection of Union-specific principles.
