CEPS Conference Room
1, Place du Congrès - 1000 Brussels
The Conference aims at analysing the role that the newly-elected European Parliament would be called to play in the building of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ), under the new legal framework provided by the Treaty of Lisbon, and in view of the policy priorities set out in the Stockholm Programme. The event falls within the scope of the project ‘Informing the Immigration Debate – Preparing for the European Parliament Elections 4-7 June 2009’ that CEPS is carrying out with support from the Barrow Cadbury Trust.
