An area of freedom, security and justice: general aspects

01-03-2018

The Lisbon Treaty attaches great importance to the creation of an area of freedom, security and justice. It introduced several important new features: a more efficient and democratic decision-making procedure that comes in response to the abolition of the old pillar structure; increased powers for the Court of Justice of the EU; and a new role for national parliaments. Basic rights are strengthened by a Charter of Fundamental Rights that is now legally binding on the EU.

Police cooperation

01-01-2018

The main instrument for police cooperation is the European Police Office (Europol), which is a central plank of the broader European internal security architecture.
