Freedom, Security and Justice after Lisbon and Stockholm

01 Sep 2011 - 16:00

This book introduces the main changes induced by the Lisbon Treaty and the Stockholm Programme in the field of Justice and Home Affairs (JHA). The creation of an Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ) has become one of the main objectives of the Union next to the completion of the internal market. The construction of an AFSJ stems from the original ambitions to turn the four freedoms of movement into a reality. This has led to a fascinating policy field, which touches upon citizens' rights, migration, asylum, borders, but also police and judicial cooperation. It impacts directly EU citizens' life but also third countries nationals as well as EU's foreign policy. Readmission agreement, migration or border control are at the heart of EU external relations.

It is within this context that this book brings a fresh look on the AFSJ. The Lisbon Treaty and the Stockholm Programme have indeed introduced fundamental changes to JHA governance as well as new policy priorities. The contributions to this book assess briefly the acquis so far and elaborate on the future challenges that remain, in order to turn the area of freedom, security and justice into a reality, both for citizens and practitioners. Written by experts with different backgrounds, academics, policy makers and practitioners, they make this book a very useful tool for a broad audience including EU officials, judges, lawyers, academics, students and police officers.

Security is very necessary in all the fields of life. Even if i talk about hosting or servers than security is on first priority. As well as if we talk about online shopping than security is also a good factor. The negative side of online shopping is that the received product may not correspond to the declared. As a rule, such cases occur only in small stores, since large sites value their reputation. All controversial issues, including on the part of warranty service, are resolved in personal correspondence or in a telephone conversation with the manager. Shopping on the Internet can also be returned, as well as goods purchased in a shopping center. Anyways, thanks for sharing the nice piece of stuff with us. Thanks
