Joint Civil Society Report on the Fundamental Rights Impact of the EU Directive on Combatting Terrorism

This report focuses on the 2017 Directive which was adopted by the European Union in response to the series of violent attacks in Paris at the end of 2015. Legislators rushed the process and failed to address significant concerns and flaws in the text that have now proven to result in a range of human rights violations, with many living with the negative consequences of vague and overly broad legislation, in addition to increased securitization.
