Common European Immigration Policy Achievements during the legislative term 2014-2019: the role of the European Parliament

15-04-2019

The (still to be achieved) common EU immigration policy covers legal migration; the support of Member States’ actions for the integration of third country nationals; combating irregular immigration through an effective return policy; concluding readmission agreements with third countries; and combating trafficking in human beings. Throughout the 2014-2019 legislative term and with a view to overcoming the migration crisis, Parliament as co-legislator has contributed to enhancing the legal avenues ...

The (still to be achieved) common EU immigration policy covers legal migration; the support of Member States’ actions for the integration of third country nationals; combating irregular immigration through an effective return policy; concluding readmission agreements with third countries; and combating trafficking in human beings. Throughout the 2014-2019 legislative term and with a view to overcoming the migration crisis, Parliament as co-legislator has contributed to enhancing the legal avenues to the Union and preventing irregular migration, notably through the interoperability of data bases; the strengthening of border control and effective returns; and the creation of a European network of immigration liaison officers as a decisive part of a holistic approach to migration. It has also discussed best practices on integration with national parliaments.

NATO at 70 [What Think Tanks are thinking]

12-04-2019

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) celebrates its 70th anniversary in April 2019, proud of its survival, durability and strong role in ensuring peace, notably during the Cold War. However, analysts and politicians stress that the military alliance must work hard to keep pace with a changing environment and the new challenges of the 21st century, both geo-strategic and technological. Another major test is the uncertain commitment to NATO of Donald Trump, the current President of the United ...

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) celebrates its 70th anniversary in April 2019, proud of its survival, durability and strong role in ensuring peace, notably during the Cold War. However, analysts and politicians stress that the military alliance must work hard to keep pace with a changing environment and the new challenges of the 21st century, both geo-strategic and technological. Another major test is the uncertain commitment to NATO of Donald Trump, the current President of the United States. This note offers links to commentaries and studies on NATO and European defence by major international think tanks. Earlier papers on European defence, focused on a planned US withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, can be found in a previous edition of 'What Think Tanks are Thinking', published in February 2019.

The Scrutiny of the European Defence Fund by the European Parliament and national parliaments

01-04-2019

Since 2016, the European Union has developed a number of new initiatives on security and defence. In particular, the introduction of Permanent Structured Cooperation and the European Defence Fund have been designed to allow the EU to become a more autonomous actor with regard to crisis management, capacity building and protecting Europe and its citizens. Yet the development of these new initiatives raises questions about their overall coherence and the role of parliamentary scrutiny. It is necessary ...

Since 2016, the European Union has developed a number of new initiatives on security and defence. In particular, the introduction of Permanent Structured Cooperation and the European Defence Fund have been designed to allow the EU to become a more autonomous actor with regard to crisis management, capacity building and protecting Europe and its citizens. Yet the development of these new initiatives raises questions about their overall coherence and the role of parliamentary scrutiny. It is necessary to analyse the role of the European Parliament and national parliaments in relation to the scrutiny of the European Defence Fund. There is a need for recommendations on how parliamentary scrutiny can be enhanced at the EU level in the area of security and defence.

European Council Conclusions: A Rolling Check-List of Commitments to Date

20-03-2019

The role of the European Council – to 'provide the Union with the necessary impetus for its development' and to define its 'general political directions and priorities' – has evolved rapidly over the last decade. Since June 2014, the European Council Oversight Unit within the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), the European Parliament's in-house research service and think tank, has been monitoring and analysing the European Council's delivery on commitments made in the conclusions of ...

The role of the European Council – to 'provide the Union with the necessary impetus for its development' and to define its 'general political directions and priorities' – has evolved rapidly over the last decade. Since June 2014, the European Council Oversight Unit within the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), the European Parliament's in-house research service and think tank, has been monitoring and analysing the European Council's delivery on commitments made in the conclusions of its meetings. This overview of European Council conclusions is a new, updated and more comprehensive edition of the Rolling Check-List, which has been published regularly by the European Council Oversight Unit since 2014. It distinguishes between four types of European Council conclusions (commitments, reviews, endorsements and statements) and indicates the follow-up given to calls for action made by EU leaders. It also offers an introductory analysis of each policy area, highlighting the background to the main orientations given by the European Council, as well as the follow-up to them and the future challenges.

Piracy and armed robbery off the coast of Africa: EU and global impact

Why artificial intelligence matters

14-03-2019

This briefing explains why AI matters by reviewing some of the key opportunities and challenges it presents, but it does so with reference to the functionality and readiness of the technology. The first section focuses on the opportunities and challenges presented by today’s AI while the second explores longer-term speculative opportunities and challenges that are contingent upon future developments that may never happen.

What if your emotions were tracked to spy on you?

13-03-2019

Recent reports of celebrity singer, Taylor Swift, deploying facial recognition technology to spot stalkers at her concerts raised many eyebrows. What started out as a tool to unlock your smartphone or tag photos for you on social media is surreptitiously becoming a means of monitoring people in their daily lives without their consent. What impact and implications are facial recognition technology applications likely to have, and what can be done to ensure the fair engagement of this technology with ...

Politische Maßnahmen der EU im Interesse der Bürger: Terrorismusbekämpfung

13-03-2019

Angesichts der zunehmenden Bedrohung durch den Terrorismus weltweit engagiert sich die Europäische Union (EU) mehr denn je für die Terrorismusbekämpfung. Die Hauptverantwortung bei der Bekämpfung von Kriminalität und der Wahrung der Sicherheit liegt zwar bei den Mitgliedstaaten, aber die EU bietet Zusammenarbeits-, Koordinations- und (in gewissem Maße) Harmonisierungsinstrumente sowie finanzielle Unterstützung, um auf dieses grenzüberschreitende Phänomen zu reagieren.

Angesichts der zunehmenden Bedrohung durch den Terrorismus weltweit engagiert sich die Europäische Union (EU) mehr denn je für die Terrorismusbekämpfung. Die Hauptverantwortung bei der Bekämpfung von Kriminalität und der Wahrung der Sicherheit liegt zwar bei den Mitgliedstaaten, aber die EU bietet Zusammenarbeits-, Koordinations- und (in gewissem Maße) Harmonisierungsinstrumente sowie finanzielle Unterstützung, um auf dieses grenzüberschreitende Phänomen zu reagieren. Darüber hinaus hat die Annahme, dass zwischen Entwicklung und Stabilität sowie zwischen der internen und der externen Sicherheit eine Verbindung besteht, das EU-Handeln über ihre eigenen Grenzen hinweg geprägt. Die EU-Ausgaben für die Terrorismusbekämpfung sind im Laufe der Jahre gestiegen und sollen dies auch in Zukunft tun, um eine bessere Zusammenarbeit zwischen den nationalen Strafverfolgungsbehörden und eine bessere Unterstützung durch die für die Sicherheit zuständigen EU-Organe wie Europol und eu-Lisa zu ermöglichen. Auch die in die Zusammenarbeit mit Drittstaaten fließenden Mittel sind gestiegen, unter anderem durch das Instrument für Stabilität und Frieden. Die vielen neuen Vorschriften und Instrumente, die seit 2014 verabschiedet wurden, reichen von der Vereinheitlichung von Definitionen für terroristische Straftaten, über den Grenzschutz, die Bekämpfung der Terrorismusfinanzierung bis hin zur Regulierung von Feuerwaffen. Zur Bewertung der Wirksamkeit der bestehenden Instrumente und zur Bestimmung von Lücken und möglichen Vorgehensweisen hat das Europäisches Parlament den Sonderausschuss Terrorismus (TERR) eingerichtet, der im November 2018 seinen Bericht vorgelegt hat. Der TERR hat umfassende Empfehlungen für umgehende und längerfristige Maßnahmen zur Terrorismusprävention, Bekämpfung der Ursachen, zum Schutz der EU-Bürger und zur bestmöglichen Unterstützung der Opfer erteilt. Im Einklang mit diesen Empfehlungen werden sich die zukünftigen EU-Maßnahmen zur Terrorismusbekämpfung sehr wahrscheinlich auf die Reaktion auf existierende und neue Bedrohungen, die Bekämpfung der Radikalisierung – unter anderem durch die Verhinderung der Verbreitung von Terrorpropaganda im Internet – und die Steigerung der Widerstandsfähigkeit kritischer Infrastruktur konzentrieren. Die zu erwartenden Entwicklungen umfassen darüber hinaus einen besseren Informationsaustausch mit geplanter Interoperabilität zwischen den sicherheits- und grenzbezogenen EU-Datenbanken sowie die Ermittlung und Verfolgung von Terrorstraftaten auf EU-Ebene durch die vorgeschlagene Erweiterung des Mandats der kürzlich eingerichteten Europäischen Staatsanwaltschaft.

Military mobility

12-03-2019

Military logistics was defined by Baron Henri de Jomini as 'the practical art of moving armies'. In the event of an unpredictable crisis at any border of the European Union (EU), military personnel and equipment must be able to move rapidly across the territory. Currently, training and the movement of military assets across the continent is severely hampered by the lack of appropriate infrastructure and cumbersome customs procedures. This strategic weakness in European defence cooperation is being ...

Military logistics was defined by Baron Henri de Jomini as 'the practical art of moving armies'. In the event of an unpredictable crisis at any border of the European Union (EU), military personnel and equipment must be able to move rapidly across the territory. Currently, training and the movement of military assets across the continent is severely hampered by the lack of appropriate infrastructure and cumbersome customs procedures. This strategic weakness in European defence cooperation is being addressed by means of action on military mobility: an action plan by the European Commission, a project and commitment under permanent structured cooperation, and a key action for EU-NATO cooperation. Military mobility is meant to ensure the seamless movement of military equipment across the EU by reducing physical, legal and regulatory obstacles.

Victims of terrorism
