The Internal Security Strategy of the EU

The Council has approved an Internal Security Strategy for the European Union. It will probably be approved by the European Council in March. The strategy lays out a European security model, which integrates among others action on law enforcement and judicial cooperation, border management and civil protection, with due respect for shared European values, such as fundamental rights. Its main objectives are:

– to present to the public the existing EU instruments that already help to guarantee the security and freedom of EU citizens and the added value that EU action provides in this area;

– to further develop common tools and policies using a more integrated approach which addresses the causes of insecurity and not just the effects;

– to strengthen law enforcement and judicial cooperation, border management, civil protection and disaster management.
