The EU looks at ways to improve its counter-terrorism efforts

In the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris and the arrests of more than a dozen suspected terrorists in Belgium, France and Germany, the EU is considering new EU wide counter-terrorism measures. EU justice and interior ministers have held one meeting and are scheduled to meet again to examine several proposals that would help increase intelligence sharing and monitor potential terrorist activity within the EU. Mark Singleton, the director of the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism in the Hague, joins us to discuss the potential changes in EU policy.
