Abstract Europe is implementing common security systems, but does not seem that they are well-functioning and integrated. Beyond of the technical difficulties, we believe that problems of poor cooperation between the States are present and that a cause of this stems from the concerns about migration and its regulation at European level. After reporting on the major issues on European security agencies, Europol, SIS and VIS, we dwell on the Eurodac system, created for the control of asylum seekers arriving in Europe. We argue that some European regulation, like the Dublin agreement on asylum seekers, puts improper incentives, dampening a cooperative behaviour of the participants to the European Union. We argue that this, among other things, derives from rival interests of the various States, and that this has negative implications on the construction of a European intelligence system.
