High-level EU representatives gathered on 14 November in Vienna at the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) to find ways of furthering a more effective security union that integrates a fundamental rights approach from the outset.
The annual meeting of the network of EU Justice and Home Affairs agencies was chaired by the Fundamental Rights Agency. The Agency heads met with Commissioner Julian King, European Commission Director Generals and representatives from the European Parliament, EU Council as well as current and future EU Presidencies to discuss the implementation of EU security and migration policies. The participants also provided practical examples of agency cooperation and how their collaboration could support the EU institutions and the EU Member States.
The network of nine EU Justice and Home Affairs agencies comprises the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), the EU’s Drug’s Agency (EMCDDA), the EU’s large-scale IT border management agency (eu-LISA), the EU's Judicial Cooperation Unit (Eurojust), the EU’s Law Enforcement Agency (Europol), the European Police College (CEPOL), the European Gender Institute (EIGE), FRA, and the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex).
