The dynamic nature of European Union security policies and the interconnection between internal and external aspects of security are no longer considered as mere academic creations. Differences in definition of challenges such as migratory movements or global terrorism and the diversity of potential approaches in which they can be addressed have made this dynamism even more explicit. Most security instruments developed in the last years have deep implications and multifaceted effects over civil liberties, human rights and social cohesion, as well as the very foundations of liberal democracies.
The objective of the 7th CHALLENGE Training School is to revisit some of the major themes discussed in the past and to offer a reflection on potential future developments. Presentations and discussions will be organised in the following sections:
Security and liberty: the expanding field of security actors, their role in the definition and implementation of security policies and the impact that these have on the balance between liberty and security;
Migration and citizenship: the nexus between integration, immigration and citizenship as a response to increasing dilemmas posed by human mobility and diversity to the nation state and the EU as a political integrationist project;
Borders and technology: the development of a European border protection regime, with particular attention devoted to the Commission ‘Border Package’;
External dimension of Justice and Home Affairs: an increasing role of the security component in the EU’s relations with its neighbours and other key international actors.
The Training School falls within the context of CHALLENGE («The Changing Landscape of European Liberty and Security») , a five-year research project funded by the Sixth Framework Research Programme of DG Research of the European Commission. CHALLENGE seeks to facilitate a more responsive and responsible assessment of the rules and practices of security, and it examines the implications of these practices for civil liberties, human rights and social cohesion in an enlarged Europe. 23 universities and research centres from all across Europe participate in this project.
