Fri, 12 May 2017
CEPS Conference Room, Place du Congrès 1 - 1000 Brussels
Close-door Policy Meeting

The policy meeting organized on the 12 May 2017 ‘Reappraising EU Security Policy Effectiveness, Rule Of Law & Rights In Countering Terrorism & Crime’ was organized in collaboration with DG HOME (Task Force Security Union) in a close-door setting and under Chatham House Rules in order to ensure a more open, direct and interactive discussion, gathering groups of around 30 participants. This Policy Meeting aimed at bringing together a selection of EU policy makers and academics, and collect inputs contributing to an evidence-based assessment of EU Security Policy. 

The event gathered a selection of scholars having played a key role in EU and nationally funded social sciences and humanities research projects covering themes of direct relevance for the Security Union.

It provided a unique opportunity for the exchange of perspectives and inter-disciplinary knowledge, and feed into the Comprehensive Assessment that the European Commission (DG Migration and Home Affairs, Task Force Security Union) conducts in the field of security policy.

Engaging in participative roundtable panels, the attendants were invited to identify key issues, challenges and gaps in the existing EU security policy instruments in relation to: the use of information systems and EU data bases, cross-border criminal and judicial investigations and international cooperation. In discussing these issues, particular attention will be paid to effectiveness, proportionality, fundamental rights and societal implications.
