The EU Sub-Committee on Home Affairs, Education and Health has launched an inquiry into the next justice and home affairs programme (2015-2019). A call for evidence was issued on 29 July 2013. The report was published on Monday 14 April 2014.
The European Council is expected to begin formal discussions in June 2014 on the EU’s next five-year agenda for EU justice and home affairs (JHA) activity. It is likely to become known as the ‘Rome Programme’, given that it will most probably be agreed at the end of the Italian Presidency of the EU in December 2014. The next JHA programme will cover the period 2015 to 2019.
EU Member States, with the input of the European Parliament and the Commission, have in the past agreed three five-year JHA programmes: the Tampere Programme covering the period 2000-2004; the Hague Programme covering the period 2005-2009, and the Stockholm Programme covering the period 2010-2014.
To feed into this process EU Member State ministers for justice and the interior began discussing this matter at an informal JHA Council meeting on 18-19 July 2013 and the Commission published two Communications in March 2014.
The EU Commission responded to the Committee's Report on 17 September 2014
