International Conference on Internal Security, 4-5 May 2006

 

HOFBURGKarte der Europäischen UnionMICHAELAPLATZ

On the initiative of the Austrian Presidency, a ministerial conference is taking place from 4 to 5 May 2006 in Vienna on the topic “The role of internal security in relations between the EU and its neighbours”. At the conference, the Police Cooperation Convention for South East Europe will be signed by the Interior Ministers of the partners to the convention (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro, Germany and Austria).

The EU Member States’ internal security is increasingly affected by international threats. International terrorism, the possible spread of weapons of mass destruction, internationally organised crime, corruption, the global phenomenon of migration, crises and catastrophes are all factors that necessitate increased action on an international level by the Interior Ministers.

Security in the European Union’s neighbourhood can be ensured only in cooperation with the states concerned. For this reason, the Interior Ministers and Ministers for Justice of the EU agreed in December 2005 on a “Strategy for the External Dimension of JHA: Global Freedom, Security and Justice”. This strategy provides for the formation of a “partnership with third countries” in the areas of justice and home affairs. The international conference on internal security in Vienna is designed to contribute to the implementation of the JHA external strategy with the involvement of third countries as partners.
