Le groupe de recherche « Cartographie de la sécurité en Europe » vous convie au séminaire Challenge-COST : Antiterrorisme, logiques du risque et de renseignement

The question of proving identity using biometric information, storing, accessing and verifying it raises more than technical questions. It goes to the heart of the legal and political values of our politics. The prospect of cross-border automatic information exchange and e-governance beg questions about how an abuse of power can be avoided, democratic accountability sustained, and liberty and security brought into balance.

Although the respective requirements of public security and privacy at times may seem to be in conflict, they are very closely interlinked. And we witness it in everyday life. Today’s technology enables information to go around the world in a flash. This technology also enables us to better control access to data, and to pinpoint relevant data. Today’s presentations showed that a proper deployment of technology could be a key reconciling security and privacy needs.

With the help of the CIA, German investigators foiled what would likely have been the most devastating terror attack of its kind in the country’s history. The plans of a fanatical group of Islamists trained in Pakistan reveal just how great a risk Europe faces.

On information, the Government will look into the prospect of extending Freedom of Information legislation to cover many more aspects of public life, including public work carried out by privately contracted companies.

The research conducted in the framework of the CHALLENGE programme, has investigated a variety of aspects of the problematique surrounding the relationship between liberty and security. The tensions involved in this relationship could also be argued to exist as far as the relationship among freedoms themselves is concerned: the notion of Rival Freedoms represents a significant aspect of the paradigm of European Governance as a liberal regime.

Rejecting the predominant view that 9/11 encouraged a ‘securitization’ of migration control, this article argues that political discourse and practice in Europe have remained surprisingly unaffected by the terrorism threat. This finding challenges the critical securities literature, implying the need for a more differentiated theory of the political system and organizational interests.

This paper by Nicole Wichmann, Research and Teaching Assistant at the University of Lucerne, deals with the justice and home affairs (JHA) elements of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP). The author refutes the core argument advanced by some analysts that the ENP is essentially a comprehensive cross-pillar security initiative by showing that its objectives as well as its instruments are also inspired by common values.

This study examines the right to effective remedies by third-country nationals reported in the Schengen Information System or SIS. Since its launch in 1995, the majority of personal data held in the SIS concerns third-country nationals to be refused entry to the Schengen territory. The use of SIS (and the second generation SIS or SIS II) entails a risk to the protection of human rights such as the right to privacy and the right to data protection, but also the freedom of movement of persons and the principle of non-discrimination.

On a beaucoup écrit sur le « sécuritaire ». Tout en se plaignant de cette évolution de la politique d’État, certains pensent cette phase nécessaire. D’autres égrènent le catalogue des mesures répressives et sont surpris des atteintes renouvelées aux libertés, de la dimunition de la sphère privée et croient encore qu’en votant pour tel ou tel candidat, leur sort en sera amélioré.

The event included presentations examining the way in which current institutional mechanisms, bodies and procedures applicable to this policy area have an impact on the changing relationship between freedom and security. At the heart of these discussions are the implications of new security policies for individual liberties. The event also served as a forum to present the Mid-Report of the CHALLENGE project gathering its main findings and policy recommendations of the first half of the project’s time span.
