  • Commission Decision of 9 February 2006 Concerning the adoption of the Programme of Work 2006 for the Preparatory Action in the field of Security Research


Security, with Freedom and Justice, is a key area where Europe has a responsibility towards its citizens, its new neighbours and on the global scene. In a Union of 25 Members, exercising this responsibility is becoming an increasingly challenging task.
Security has always been an important overall issue for Europe. However, in recent years there has been a growing global awareness that security is not a permanent attribute of modern societies. The Commission therefore reviewed the situation in the Justice, Freedom and Security multi-annual programme against terrorism and serious crime.
Maintaining security for citizens of Europe as well as contributing to a better world requires an active contribution from the European Union with due regard for fundamental rights and democratic accountability at EU and national level.
