ECR home affairs spokesman sets out EU Security Strategy priorities

Ahead of today’s European Commission announcement of an updated EU Internal Security Strategy, European Conservatives and Reformists Group justice and home affairs spokesman Timothy Kirkope MEP has published a list of priorities that the ECR Group will pursue in the parliament’s recommendations for inclusion.

The priorities include tackling radicalisation, combatting online recruitment, cybercrime, strengthening external border controls, terrorist funding, better implementation of information exchange, and measures to improve global cooperation. The strategy also calls for the adoption of EU Passenger Name Record proposals on which Mr Kirkhope is the parliament’s rapporteur.

Mr Kirkhope said:

“The EU’s internal security strategy is critical to ensuring people and infrastructure are protected from sophisticated, well-organised and funded terrorists and organised criminals. The EU needs to step up its cooperation and make sure that we are using all existing tools and new tools to tackle these challenges.

“We have been discussing these priorities with the European Commission, and we plan to take them forward as the EU institutions set about delivering a new security strategy fit for these dangerous and complex times. The ECR will play a full role in creating a strategy that places both the protection of people’s lives, and their liberties, at its heart.”
