Media reports suggested that France and Belgium were working on improving intelligence data sharing mechanisms, in the wake of the terrorist attacks which hit Paris in November 2015 after being mainly organised in Belgium.

This move would include harmonising and systemising how information on individuals deemed dangerous or radicalised was shared between countries in the 26-nation, passport-free Schengen zone.
