FP7-SEC-2012.6.5-1 Coordination & Supporting Actions (Coordinating)
The SECILE project aims to create an empirically-informed view of the legitimacy and effectiveness of European security legislation, taking into account legal, societal, operational and democratic perspectives. It aims to produce an interdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder understanding of mechanisms for measuring the impact, legitimacy and effectiveness of legal measures, connecting theoretical and practical perspectives with a sound and operationally-informed analysis of these measures in practice. In this way it aims to identify the strengths, weaknesses, assumptions and dissonances across and between existing theoretical, institutional and operational perspectives.
The total SECILE budget yields 1,184,011.61 €.
Project period: 01/10/2012 - 01/04/2014, duration 1,5 years.
The main goal of SECILE is to provide an empirically-informed, multi-stakeholder understanding of how the impact, legitimacy and effectiveness of European security legislation might be best measured and understood. In the fulfilment of this objective the project will place particular emphasis on gathering and understanding practical experiences of implementing and assessing these measures gathered from and with end users, including domestic courts, lawmakers, security services, industry partners and civil society.
The Halpin Centre, Maritime Safety and Security, participates in the following tasks and deliverables in WP3.

D 3.2 Inter-disciplinary, multi-perspective report describing the state of knowledge on the meaning and measurement of impact, legitimacy and effect in the context of counter-terrorism law.
