The European Union is at a crossroads today. In these times of 'crisis', the EU's legitimacy is increasingly questioned.
The 2017 CEPS Ideas Lab – a key annual event on EU policy organised by the Brussels-based think tank – explores how we can reconstruct the Union for the future. When it comes to such core EU challenges as Rights & Security, the central question is how these policies can be designed and implemented with respect for the EU rule of law and fundamental rights. That is the question we want to explore on this page.
The 2017 Ideas Lab, cooperating with openDemocracy, brings debates in these Rights & Security sessions straight to this dedicated page. We cover here some of the main issues and challenges characterising EU internal and external policies on migration, borders, asylum and privacy. The objective is to open up debate.
These key EU policies affect the liberty and security of EU citizens and third country nationals alike, and can only benefit from open and democratic discussion.
