Use of financial data for preventing and combatting serious crime

19-07-2019

On 17 April 2018, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a directive intended to facilitate law enforcement authorities' access to and use of financial information held in other jurisdictions within the EU for investigations related to terrorism and other serious crime. The proposed directive would grant competent authorities direct access to bank account information contained in centralised registries set up in each Member State, according to the Fifth Anti-Money-Laundering Directive.

On 17 April 2018, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a directive intended to facilitate law enforcement authorities' access to and use of financial information held in other jurisdictions within the EU for investigations related to terrorism and other serious crime. The proposed directive would grant competent authorities direct access to bank account information contained in centralised registries set up in each Member State, according to the Fifth Anti-Money-Laundering Directive. The proposal also aims to strengthen domestic and cross-border exchange of information between EU Member States' competent authorities, including law enforcement authorities and financial intelligence units, as well as with Europol. The provisional agreement reached in February 2019 in interinstitutional negotiations was adopted by the European Parliament on 17 April 2019, followed by the Council on 14 June. On 20 June 2019, the directive was signed into law and then published in the Official Journal on 11 July. Member States have until 1 August 2021 to transpose its provisions into national law.

Interoperability between EU border and security information systems

14-06-2019

To enhance EU external border management and internal security, the European Commission has made several proposals to upgrade and expand European border and security information systems. As part of a broader process to maximise their use, the Commission presented legislative proposals for two regulations in December 2017 (amended in June 2018), establishing an interoperability framework between EU information systems on borders and visas, and on police and judicial cooperation, asylum and migration ...

To enhance EU external border management and internal security, the European Commission has made several proposals to upgrade and expand European border and security information systems. As part of a broader process to maximise their use, the Commission presented legislative proposals for two regulations in December 2017 (amended in June 2018), establishing an interoperability framework between EU information systems on borders and visas, and on police and judicial cooperation, asylum and migration. After completion of the legislative procedure at first reading in the Parliament and in the Council, the final acts were signed by the co-legislators on 20 May 2019 and published in the Official Journal two days later. Both acts came into force on 11 June 2019. The new rules aim to improve checks at the EU’s external borders, allow for better detection of security threats and identity fraud, and help in preventing and combating irregular migration. Third edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Area of freedom, security and justice: Cost of Non-Europe

08-05-2019

Substantial progress has been made since creating an area of freedom, security and justice became a major political objective for the EU 20 years ago. Still, there is a lack of consistent monitoring and enforcement of EU values and norms as well as outstanding gaps in the EU’s framework in certain areas. These deficiencies have a significant impact at individual level, notably in terms of preventing the effective exercise of fundamental rights by EU citizens and third country nationals alike. They ...

Substantial progress has been made since creating an area of freedom, security and justice became a major political objective for the EU 20 years ago. Still, there is a lack of consistent monitoring and enforcement of EU values and norms as well as outstanding gaps in the EU’s framework in certain areas. These deficiencies have a significant impact at individual level, notably in terms of preventing the effective exercise of fundamental rights by EU citizens and third country nationals alike. They also have a negative effect on budgetary spending, growth and tax revenue, which is estimated at at least €180 billion annually, with the lack of enforcement of EU values still to be assessed in more detail. Further EU action in four main areas: 1. monitoring and enforcement; 2. the creation of safe legal pathways for migrants and asylum seekers to enter the EU; 3. ingraining a European law enforcement culture; and 4. completing the Union’s fundamental rights framework, would have significant benefits. In particular, it could allow individuals to fully enjoy their fundamental rights and make EU society more secure, open, fair and prosperous. This would also foster trust in the EU on the basis of its ability to deliver on its aims

Die zehn Prioritäten der Kommission Juncker: Eine Bewertung zum Ende der Amtszeit

Mit dieser Ausgabe von April 2019 wird der Zyklus der halb¬jährlichen Überwachung der zehn Prioritäten der Kom¬mission Juncker durch den Wissenschaftlichen Dienst des Europäischen Parlaments abgeschlossen. Nach der letzten Plenartagung des Zeitraums 2014-2019 und vor dem Ende der Amtszeit der Kommission enthält die vorliegende Veröffentlichung einen aktuel¬len Überblick über den derzeitigen Stand der geleis¬teten Arbeit in Bezug auf die verschiedenen legislativen und anderweitigen politischen Initiativen, die aus den von Präsident Jean-Claude Juncker zum Zeitpunkt des Amtsantritts der Kommission im Jahr 2014 festgelegten zehn Prioritäten abgeleitet wurden. Aus der Analyse geht hervor, dass von den 547 von der Kom¬mission vorgesehenen Vorschlägen 512 vorgelegt wur¬den (94 %), von denen 361 angenommen wur¬den (66 %). Es gibt 151 Vorschläge (28 %), die noch nicht an¬ge¬nommen wurden und bei denen das Ergebnis von dem Übergang in den neu¬en institutionellen Zyklus der EU in diesem Jahr abhän-gen kann. Von diesen Vorschlä¬gen haben 115 (21 %) den Legislativprozess ordnungs¬gemäß durch¬laufen; bei 36 Vorschlägen (7 %) wurden ent¬we¬der nur lang-sa¬me Fortschritte verzeichnet oder aber sie wurden blockiert. Am Vorabend der Europawahl 2019 soll mit dieser Studie sowohl bewertet werden, inwieweit die Kommission Juncker die von ihr selbst gesteckten Ziele erreicht hat, als auch Kenntnis von dem bislang Erreichten genom¬men und Bereiche ermittelt werden, in denen sich Schwierigkeiten eingestellt haben oder weiterhin einstellen.

Victims of terrorism

01-03-2019

The European Day of Remembrance of Victims of Terrorism has been established as 11 March each year, marking the Madrid bombings in 2004. The protection of victims of terrorism constitutes an essential part of the EU’s action to address all dimensions of the terrorist threat. Following the wave of terror that has hit Europe in recent years, rules and sanctions related to terrorist activities have been strengthened, while better protection and support to victims of terrorism is being ensured through ...

Erschließung des Potenzials der EU-Verträge: Eine artikelweise Analyse der Handlungsmöglichkeiten

07-01-2019

In der öffentlichen Meinung wird häufig die Forderung erhoben, dass die Europäische Union mehr unternehmen sollte, um das Leben der Bürger in verschiedenen Politikbereichen zu verbessern. Angesichts der mangelnden Konvergenz zwischen den Mitgliedstaaten hinsichtlich der gewünschten Veränderungen, angesichts der im Ratifizierungsprozess zu erwartenden Hürden und angesichts weiterer Faktoren erscheint es jedoch unwahrscheinlich, dass es kurzfristig zu erheblichen Änderungen an den EU-Verträgen kommt ...

In der öffentlichen Meinung wird häufig die Forderung erhoben, dass die Europäische Union mehr unternehmen sollte, um das Leben der Bürger in verschiedenen Politikbereichen zu verbessern. Angesichts der mangelnden Konvergenz zwischen den Mitgliedstaaten hinsichtlich der gewünschten Veränderungen, angesichts der im Ratifizierungsprozess zu erwartenden Hürden und angesichts weiterer Faktoren erscheint es jedoch unwahrscheinlich, dass es kurzfristig zu erheblichen Änderungen an den EU-Verträgen kommt. In der vorliegenden Studie werden 34 Politikbereiche ermittelt und analysiert, in denen möglicherweise ein Potenzial vorliegt, um auf der bestehenden Rechtsgrundlage, wie sie durch die Verträge festgelegt ist, verstärkt tätig zu werden, ohne Änderungen oder Aktualisierungen an den Verträgen vorzunehmen. Es werden derzeit nicht genutzte oder unzureichend genutzte Rechtsgrundlagen in den Verträgen im Hinblick darauf untersucht, wie durch die Nutzung bzw. verstärkte Nutzung dieser Rechtsgrundlagen zu einem wirksameren politischen Prozess in der EU beigetragen werden könnte.

European Council conclusions - A rolling check-list of commitments to date

12-12-2018

The role of the European Council – to 'provide the Union with the necessary impetus for its development' and to define its 'general political directions and priorities' – has evolved rapidly over the last decade. Since June 2014, the European Council Oversight Unit within the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), the European Parliament's in-house research service and think-tank, has been monitoring and analysing the European Council's delivery on commitments made in the conclusions of ...

The role of the European Council – to 'provide the Union with the necessary impetus for its development' and to define its 'general political directions and priorities' – has evolved rapidly over the last decade. Since June 2014, the European Council Oversight Unit within the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), the European Parliament's in-house research service and think-tank, has been monitoring and analysing the European Council's delivery on commitments made in the conclusions of its meetings. This overview of European Council conclusions is a new, updated and more comprehensive edition of the Rolling Check-List which has been published regularly by the European Council Oversight Unit since 2014. It is designed to review the degree of progress in achieving the goals that the European Council has set itself and to assist the Parliament in exercising its important oversight role in this field.

The migration, borders and security cluster of the 2021-2027 MFF

07-12-2018

Within the context of the multiannual financial framework the Commission is proposing a cluster of four instruments under three funds to deal with migration borders and security. This initial appraisal of the Commission’s impact assessment on the proposals acknowledges the necessity for impact assessments in relation to financial framework programmes to have a simplified format and scope differing from standard impact assessments and that the document in question sets out the rationale for the new ...

Within the context of the multiannual financial framework the Commission is proposing a cluster of four instruments under three funds to deal with migration borders and security. This initial appraisal of the Commission’s impact assessment on the proposals acknowledges the necessity for impact assessments in relation to financial framework programmes to have a simplified format and scope differing from standard impact assessments and that the document in question sets out the rationale for the new instruments and explains the choices made in their design. It finds however that the level of analysis conducted and the measure of the departure from the standard methodology and format of impact assessments weaken its potential to inform decision-making.

Revision of the Schengen Information System for border checks

18-10-2018

The Schengen Information System (SIS) is a large-scale information database that supports external border control and law-enforcement cooperation in the Schengen states by enabling competent authorities, such as police and border guards, to enter and consult alerts on wanted or missing persons and lost or stolen property. In view of responding more effectively to new migration and security challenges, in December 2016, the European Commission put forward a package of three legislative proposals aimed ...

The Schengen Information System (SIS) is a large-scale information database that supports external border control and law-enforcement cooperation in the Schengen states by enabling competent authorities, such as police and border guards, to enter and consult alerts on wanted or missing persons and lost or stolen property. In view of responding more effectively to new migration and security challenges, in December 2016, the European Commission put forward a package of three legislative proposals aimed at revising the legal framework of the SIS. The proposal on the establishment, operation and use of the SIS in the field of border checks provides for more effective use of fingerprints and facial images in the SIS, and imposes an obligation on the Member States to record all entry bans issued to thirdcountry nationals who have been found staying illegally in their territory. Third edition of a briefing originally drafted by Costica Dumbrava. The ‘EU Legislation in Progress’ briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Among other things, the proposal introduces the obligation for Member States to enter all return decisions into the SIS. Third edition of a briefing originally drafted by Costica Dumbrava.
