On 28 April 2015 the Commission adopted a Communication on the European Agenda on Security for the period 2015-2020 (COM(2015)0185) which replaces the Internal Security Strategy (2010-2014). The Agenda sets out the priorities and the key principles in the area of security as well as the Union measures aiming at improving information exchange, strengthening operational cooperation and providing support actions to the Member States. The Commission has invited Parliament and the Council to endorse the Agenda, and has called for the active engagement of the EU institutions in the implementation of it.
1. Can the Commission indicate how it envisages implementing the European Agenda on Security, and how it will cooperate with Parliament in the process of monitoring the implementation of the Agenda?
2. Has the Commission received assessments by the agencies affected by the European Agenda on Security – in particular Europol, Frontex, Eurojust and the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) – concerning their human and financial resources needs? If so, what needs for additional resources and staff have these agencies communicated to the Commission and the directorate general concerned, and is the Commission willing to address these needs properly in the proposed budget?
