How can terrorists be identified before they perpetrate destructive attacks? From the United States to the European Union, the question is being asked; how the techniques for the filing and analysis of  preventive  and anti-terrorist strategy information can be streamlined. In the meantime, the terrorist escapes control. The panorama is, in fact, so vast and many-sided that it is difficult to understand and know it in its complexity. However, to intervene with the “preventive” aim, as the American anti-terrorist philosophy maintains, raises many questions in Europe. There is a need to reflect upon the errors already committed, improve the methodologies of the utilization of the data and, above all, know better the potential terrorist, before he actually becomes one, when he is still “our” very normal next-door neighbour

Brexit has been the most debated issue of the last months in Europe, because it represents a turning point not only in the history of the United Kingdom but especially in the that of the European Union. It is the first time, since the birth of the European Community, that a Member States decides to leave the EU. It has been a shock for the European Union, which normally rejects demands of admission but has never drafted a Withdrawing Agreement. Is Brexit a failure or an opportunity for all the actors involved, for United Kingdom and the European Union? What will be the future of the "European Dream" and of the Union Jack? In the following exclusive article for EPOS, Eleonora Lamio tries to answer these and other questions, pointing out and elucidating all the factors from a political, economic, social and cultural point of view
