In practice, this cooperation mainly concerns serious crime (organised crime, drug trafficking, trafficking in human beings and cybercrime) and terrorism. Considerable ...

Das Europäische Parlament wird im April voraussichtlich über einen Legislativvorschlag abstimmen, durch den die Sicherheit der Personalausweise von Unionsbürgern und der Aufenthaltsdokumente, die Unionsbürgern und ihren Familienmitgliedern ausgestellt werden, erhöht werden soll.

Flüchtlingsbewegungen und Migration stehen im Mittelpunkt der weltweiten Aufmerksamkeit. Seit einigen Jahren sieht sich Europa mit der größten Einwanderungswelle seit Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges konfrontiert.
