The seminar opened with a speech by the European Minister Caroline Flint. Police and others involved in combating cross border crime both with partner organizations and with detecting and apprehending international criminals inside their own borders discussed many of the ways in which loopholes are exploited. Attention was drawn to trafficking and to the misuse of the internet, public unawareness about how to protect themselves using e-information exchange, and crucially how to educate the young about the perils of web use, especially of social networking sites. Challenge was presented with attention on issues of ensuring public accountability, secure architectures, migration and policing being of particular interest.

Faure Atger Anaïs,
The upcoming Swedish presidency of the EU will be in charge of adopting the next multi-annual programme on an Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ), during its tenure in the second half of 2009. As the successor of the 2004 Hague Programme, it has already been informally baptised as the Stockholm Programme and will present the EU’s policy roadmap and legislative timetable over these policies for the next five years. It is therefore a critical time to reflect on the achievements and shortcomings affecting the role that the European Commission’s Directorate-General of Justice, Freedom and Security (DG JFS) has played during the last five years in light of the degree of policy convergence achieved so far.

This working document offers a conceptual framework for understanding the processes underpinning the external dimension of EU Justice and Home Affairs (ED-JHA). Practically, it defines how the export of JHA principles and norms inform the geopolitical ambitions of the EU, i.e. the use of space for political purposes, or the control and management of people, objects and movement. The author begins by investigating how the ENP reconfigures the ED-JHA, and then goes on to discuss various conceptual stances on governance, specifically institutionalism, constructivism, and policy instruments.
