This is a comparative study of emergency measures - legal, legal-administrative and executive - in a number of European legal systems. It highlights the existence of similarities between the two ""families"" of legal systems within the EEC framework - common law and civil law - and seeks to justify harmonization and more fluid integration between the relevant states seeking not only a fuller degree of European co-operation but also a prospective single EEC jurisdiction to deal with the challenge of terrorism in the future.
