Special Issue on the Health-Security Nexus and the European Union

Hylke Dijkstra and Anniek De Ruijter have edited a special issue of the European Journal of Risk Regulation bringing together lawyers and political scientists working on the public health-security nexus in the European Union.

The European Union is increasingly moving toward an integrated policy approach, which also acknowledges linkages between public health and (external) security policy. This Special Issue sets out a research agenda on the emerging health-security nexus. It analyses recent policy developments with respect to the public health and security, and discusses interactions along the health-security nexus in the context of the European Union. It suggests drivers behind the integrated approach and it critically examines the health-security nexus from the perspective of effectiveness and legitimacy.

The Special Issue brings together lawyers and political scientists from Maastricht University, University of Amsterdam, University of Sussex, Queen’s University Belfast, University of Western Australia, and the University of Warsaw exploring how public health and security interact and what the consequences are for the European Union. The contributors to the Special Issue first presented their papers at a workshop of the Maastricht University Campus Brussels in 2016, which was kindly sponsored by the Centre for European Research in Maastricht (CERiM).
