Promoting the Rights and Values, Justice and Creative Europe programmes

15-11-2018

With the future (1) Rights and Values, (2) Justice and (3) Creative Europe programmes, the European Commission aims to protect better EU rights and values; to develop further a European area of justice; and to support European cultural and creative sectors and audiovisual works under the 2021-2027 multiannual financial framework.

With the future (1) Rights and Values, (2) Justice and (3) Creative Europe programmes, the European Commission aims to protect better EU rights and values; to develop further a European area of justice; and to support European cultural and creative sectors and audiovisual works under the 2021-2027 multiannual financial framework. This initial appraisal of the Commission’s impact assessment on the proposal finds that the impact assessment is substantiated by various evaluations, studies and consultations. The Commission describes the challenges encountered of the current and previous programmes well. However, the lack of policy options and of an impact analysis seriously affect the IA's quality. In addition, the IA does not match the three proposals: the only option considered does not mention a self-standing Creative Europe programme, which the Commission ultimately proposed.

De bescherming van de grondrechten in de EU

De Europese Unie is gegrondvest op de waarden van eerbied voor de menselijke waardigheid, vrijheid, democratie, gelijkheid, de rechtsstaat en eerbiediging van de mensenrechten, waaronder de rechten van personen die tot minderheden behoren, zoals bepaald in artikel 2 VEU.

De Europese Unie is gegrondvest op de waarden van eerbied voor de menselijke waardigheid, vrijheid, democratie, gelijkheid, de rechtsstaat en eerbiediging van de mensenrechten, waaronder de rechten van personen die tot minderheden behoren, zoals bepaald in artikel 2 VEU. Om te waarborgen dat deze waarden in acht worden genomen, bestaat er een EU-mechanisme om te constateren of een lidstaat ze ernstig schendt of duidelijk dreigt ze ernstig te schenden. Dat is onlangs voor het eerst geactiveerd. De EU is ook gebonden aan haar Handvest van de grondrechten, dat de rechten bevat die de Unie en de lidstaten moeten eerbiedigen bij de uitvoering van EU-wetgeving. De EU heeft zich voorts ertoe verbonden om toe te treden tot het Europees Verdrag tot bescherming van de rechten van de mens en de fundamentele vrijheden.

Brexit Literature Update 02/2018

21-02-2018

Following a relevant request by the Committee on Constitutional Affairs, the Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs has been compiling, on a regular basis, academic and scholarly material related to the process of, and the negotiations on, the withdrawal of the UK from the EU. Since the June 2016 referendum in the UK, Brexit-related literature has grown significantly and it is probably going to expand further in the future. Thus, this compilation is far from exhaustive; ...

Following a relevant request by the Committee on Constitutional Affairs, the Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs has been compiling, on a regular basis, academic and scholarly material related to the process of, and the negotiations on, the withdrawal of the UK from the EU. Since the June 2016 referendum in the UK, Brexit-related literature has grown significantly and it is probably going to expand further in the future. Thus, this compilation is far from exhaustive; rather, it identifies some of the more useful articles, taking into account, in particular, the following elements: • Scholarly rather than a journalistic character of the publication • Originality and interest • Recent publication • Be of interest for the EU • Constitutional or institutional relevance.

Luchtvervoer: Beveiliging van de burgerluchtvaart

01-02-2018

De beveiliging van de luchtvaart (niet te verwarren met veiligheid van de luchtvaart[1]) heeft tot doel het voorkomen van kwaadwillige handelingen gericht tegen luchtvaartuigen en passagiers en personeel aan boord. Na de afschuwelijke aanslagen in 2001 heeft de EU een reeks voorschriften ter beveiliging van de burgerluchtvaart vastgesteld. Deze voorschriften worden regelmatig bijgewerkt om in te spelen op groeiende risico's. De lidstaten behouden het recht om strengere maatregelen te treffen.
