MWP Multidisciplinary Research Workshop - European Transnationalism Between Successes and Shortcomings: Threats, Strategies and Actors under the Microscope

Dates:
  • Fri 17 May 2019 10.00 - 17.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-05-17 10:00 2019-05-17 17:00 Europe/Paris MWP Multidisciplinary Research Workshop - European Transnationalism Between Successes and Shortcomings: Threats, Strategies and Actors under the Microscope

The present workshop will focus on threats that do not originate in and are not confined to a single country. Terrorism, organised crime, severe human rights violations such as the human trafficking are representative examples of the so called transnational threats and appear to be at the top of the European political and jurisprudential agenda since they affect entire regions and ultimately the European community as a whole. Against this backdrop, the first part of the workshop will be dedicated to the strong linkages between transnational threats like the terrorist one, freedom, justice and security. The notion of national security and the collective responses to transnational challenges that cut across the political and economical dimensions of security will be found at the centre of this session. In the second part of the workshop, the focus will shift onto the European regulatory efforts to address transnational threats. Recent European measures on combating terrorism and human rights violations as well as on the use of personal data in the field of law enforcement will offer a number of examples to understand and evaluate the changing landscape of European criminal law policies and sanction regimes as well as to explore whether those changes and policies are still in accordance with fundamental freedoms, democracy and the rule of law. To facilitate the understanding of the practical impact of the European strategy to counter transnational threats, the third part of the workshop will provide an insight in the European agencies’ perspective using the example of Europol and its efforts to enhance cross-border law enforcement authorities’ cooperation.

Organisers: Silvia D'Amato (MWP/RSCAS) and Athina Sachoulidou (MWP/LAW Dep)
