Welcome words

Juan Fernando LÓPEZ AGUILAR

As Chair of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) I am pleased to welcome you on this page.

The LIBE Committee is in charge of most of the legislation and democratic oversight for policies enabling the European Union to offer its citizens an area of freedom, security and justice (Article 3 TEU). While doing so it ensures the full respect of the Charter of Fundamental Rights in the EU territory in conjunction with the European Convention on Human Rights and the strengthening of European citizenship.

Our 68-Member Committee carries out its work in daily interactions with the European Commission, the Council of ministers and as well as in close cooperation with national Parliaments. Regular exchanges also take place with representatives from the judiciary, law-enforcement authorities, Justice and Home Affairs EU agencies, academics and civil society.
