Transparency of the Stockholm Programme

On 15 April 2009, Access Info joined other members of the European Civil Liberties Network in a statement raising concerns about the potential detrimental impact of the EU’s “Stockholm programme” on civil liberties in Europe. The “Stockholm Programme” sets the agenda for EU justice and home affairs and internal security policy from 2010 to 2014 and will extend militarised border controls, discriminatory immigration policies, mandatory and proactive surveillance regimes and an increasingly aggressive external security and defence policy. Access Info is calling for the process of adopting and reviewing any new measures to be transparent.
