THESEUS Seminar for Young Leaders, Brussels

Freedom, security and justice as a common challenge – justice and home affairs in the EU after the treaty of Lisbon


The treaty of Lisbon was an important reform step for the European Union. One of the fields that have undergone the most significant changes is the “Area of Freedom, Justice and Security”. As it touches upon key competences of the state, it has always been a major issue of debate and dispute.

* analyse what changes the treaty of Lisbon brought about for the “Area of Freedom, Justice and Security”;
* assess the challenges for the EU in this policy area in view of efficiency and legitimacy in the years to come;
* advise on potentials and limits for further cooperation and integration.

As in last years the seminar will feature speakers and high-level experts from international organisations, business, politics, NGOs, as well as recognised researchers.
