European Internal Security Conference
23-25 April 2012, European University Institute, San Domenico di Fiesole
The aim of the conference on 'European Internal Security' is to investigate the drivers in European integration in Justice and Home Affairs. More specifically the conference will focus on the following themes:
(1) What or who are the engines of European integration (or disintegration) in European Internal Security?
(2) Taking stock of long term and current policy developments in the various policy areas of the AFSJ
(3) What inter-institutional relations can be observed and what cooperation patterns can be identified “on the ground” among security practitioners?
(4) Does the External Dimension of the Area of Freedom Security and Justice provide an alternative to the European Common Foreign and Security Policy?
(5) What research approaches and methodologies can be identified for the study of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice?
The conference is funded by the European Commission Jean Monnet Programme / Lifelong Learning Programme
