Justice and Home Affairs Committee

ABOUT THE COMMITTEE

The European Parliament’s Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee has responsibility for a wide range of areas including migration and police cooperation. ECR MEPs believe that most matters of criminal law must remain a matter for national governments.

MAIN ECR PRIORITIES

Safe citizens and safe borders

The ECR Group has taken a leading role in legislating on security and terrorism within the European Parliament. We believe that the EU can help the EU’s national police forces by exchanging information which can help speed up the capture of criminals, and help prevent crimes committed across European borders.

Sensible approach to immigration

We believe that a “Firm but Fair” approach to immigration is the best one. Member States should seek to cooperate with Europe to protect Europe’s borders, to offer asylum to those who are genuinely in need of our help and protection, and to take a firm stance with those individuals who seek to exploit the system. The EU can help support individual countries by helping them fulfil their international obligations, and provide support through returns programmes, resettlement programmes and the European Asylum Support Office.

Helping business

We believe that tackling fundamental issues like data protection and the fight against money laundering, corruption and financial crimes are key issues in helping the European economy and businesses grow. The new Data Protection Regulation has an enormous impact on the lives of citizens and the way businesses work. As individuals we must be protected, but that should not come at the cost of small and medium sized businesses being able to trade.

ADVISORS

Read more about the JUSTICE AND HOME AFFAIRS COMMITTEE

The ECR Group believes in a clear and common sense approach to Justice and Home Affairs.
The European Parliament’s Justice and Home Affairs committee deals with a wide variety of issues, ranging from data protection, to immigration, to combating crime and terrorism. On all of these issues, our approach is the same; that the EU is not there to replace national systems, but to assist them.
