Debate on improving EU-wide information exchange to fight terrorism and crime 

What is being done to improve information exchange among member states’ law enforcement authorities and EU agencies, and also to ensure that information systems are fully interoperable? These will be the key questions that MEPs put to the EU Commission and Council in a debate on Wednesday afternoon.

Investigations into the recent terror attacks in Paris and Brussels showed that improving information exchange among EU member states’ law enforcement authorities and with and between EU agencies such as Europol (police cooperation), Eurojust (judicial cooperation) and Frontex (border management), is a key need in fighting terrorism and organised crime.


Procedure: Commission and Council statement

Debate: Wednesday, 8 June
