This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the purpose of the book, which is to examine the complex institutional and substantive issues arising from the EU's practice of listing and sanctioning private individuals who are suspected of supporting terrorism. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the two types of counter-terrorist sanctions adopted within the EU: those giving effect to UN lists of terrorist suspects and those giving effect to autonomous European lists. It argues that the Union is not competent to adopt lists of terrorist suspects, nor is the Community competent to freeze the assets of individuals. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
