Hearings, Under Rule 193 of the Rules of Procedure, a committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues.

Welcome words

As Chair of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) I am happy to welcome you to this page.
The LIBE Committee is responsible for the vast majority of the legislation and democratic oversight of Justice and Home Affairs policies. Whilst doing so, it ensures the full respect of the Charter of Fundamental Rights within the EU, the European Convention on Human Rights and the strengthening of European citizenship.
Our Committee carries out its work in daily interactions with the European Commission (representing the European interest), the Council of Ministers (representing the 28 Member States' governments and national interests) and in close cooperation with national Parliaments. Regular exchanges also take place with representatives from the judiciary, law-enforcement authorities, academics and civil society.
While fully respecting the national legal order, Justice and Home Affairs policies are aimed at tackling issues of a common interest at the European level, such as: the fight against international crime and against terrorism, the protection of fundamental rights, ensuring data protection and privacy in a digital age, fighting against discrimination based on racial or ethnic origin, religion, belief, disability, age or sexual orientation.
The LIBE Committee will do its upmost to continue building a fruitful dialogue with all interested parties and especially with citizens.
