Kot predsednik Odbora za državljanske svoboščine, pravosodje in notranje zadeve vas z veseljem pozdravljam na tej strani.
Odbor LIBE je pristojen za veliko večino zakonodaje na področju politik pravosodja in notranjih zadev ter njihov demokratični nadzor. Pri tem zagotavlja dosledno spoštovanje Listine Evropske unije o temeljnih pravicah, Evropske konvencije o človekovih pravicah in krepitev evropskega državljanstva.
Odbor svoje delo opravlja prek vsakodnevnih stikov z Evropsko komisijo (ki zastopa evropski interes), Svetom ministrov (ki zastopa vlade in nacionalne interese 28 držav članic) ter v tesnem sodelovanju z nacionalnimi parlamenti. Ravno tako potekajo redne izmenjave s predstavniki sodstva, organi pregona, akademskimi krogi in civilno družbo.
Politike na področju pravosodja in notranjih zadev ob celovitem upoštevanju nacionalnega pravnega reda obravnavajo vprašanja v skupnem interesu na evropski ravni, kot so: boj proti mednarodnemu kriminalu in terorizmu, varstvo temeljnih pravic, zagotavljanje varstva podatkov in zasebnosti v digitalni dobi, boj proti diskriminaciji na podlagi rase ali narodnosti, vere, prepričanja, invalidnosti, starosti ali spolne usmerjenosti.
Odbor LIBE si bo po svojih najboljših močeh prizadeval za krepitev plodnega dialoga z vsemi zainteresiranimi stranmi, zlasti z državljani.
