Summary/Abstract: It becomes increasingly difficult to ignore the challenge of security in an enlarged Europe. One of the most significant current discussions on legal and security studies is the importance of a secure climate for the common European space. In this context, the security threats and discourse of uncertainty play a key role in the public policy elaboration. In a new Europe, security and basic privileges are in a constant clash that has led to a renewed interest in the field of human rights. The terrorist attacks of the past decade have increased the rapid advances of pre-emptive security and national security measures. In the present article, we will review the questions raised by authors such as Gary Marx, Seidler Victor, Ranstorp Magnus, and Paul Wilkinson on the prolonged crisis of security and its impact on our common democratic culture. In the second part of the article, we will consistently show how the European states subscribed to the belief of danger and imminent threat and how this is reflected in their national legislation. In many European countries, scholars have drawn attention to the paradox of a culture of maximum security and the Europeanization of human rights law. The objective of our paper is to determine the conceptual framework of the security challenge in the European Union, examining concepts such as the global fear, international security, and domination through fear.
