Overview

Participants will discuss impact of various crises on the European Union Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (EU AFSJ) in its different dimensions. They will analyse legal and political aspects of these crises and related changes within the EU AFSJ focusing on the following issues:

  • Schengen crisis: possible scenarios for the future;
  • Crises and labour immigration policy in the European Union: between Europeanisation and protection of ‘national interests’;
  • CEAS: reconciliation of multiple priorities (migrants’ rights, interests of Member States, EU priorities);
  • The New Pact on Migration and Asylum: is there a chance to overcome the failure of the 2015 Agenda on Migration? To what extent can it respond to crisis of the CEAS, crisis of solidarity, crisis provoked by the COVID-19 pandemic?
  • BREXIT: consequences for the EU Area of Freedom, Security and Justice and internal security of both EU Member States and the UK;
  • How do agencies in the EU Area of Freedom, Security and Justice deal with various crises? How do they define these crises, frame problems and policy solutions?
  • Impact of various crises on EU approaches to multiple security issues: organised crime, terrorism, cybercrime, public health. Knowledge transfer between different areas (e.g. policing approaches to health security) and between different levels in the multi-level system;
  • What are the outcomes of crises for the EU? Do they make the EU weaker unveiling its Gordian knots (solidarity, mutual trust)? Can the EU use opportunities emerging from crises to become more resilient?
