Summary/Abstract: From the very beginning, the European Union and its authorities have been involved in strengthening cooperation between the Member States, on the one hand, and between these countries and other third parts, as non-European Union ones, on the other hand, in order to diminish as much as possible, or better, to stop the phenomenon of organized crime, including the transnational one, and terrorism. Having into consideration the efforts made by these authorities as well as the action plan they proposed on this topic, the consequences have to be encouraging for both parties and, not in the last time, for the society in its whole dimension. In this paper, I would like to analyze and discuss some of the criticisms stated at the address of the Stockholm Programme and also to the other documents the European authorities adopted in this purpose. I will also point out the way in which some measures are viewed as being restriction of the citizens’ rights, but not guarantees of their fundamental rights and freedoms.
