Lunch Time Meeting

Tampere 20 Year Anniversary

Achievements and Future Priorities for EU AFSJ Agenda


The second half of 2019 corresponds with the 20 year anniversary of the Tampere Programme (European Council Conclusions of October 1999).

The Tampere Programme laid down for the first time a common EU policy agenda on Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) policies, including those related to migration, asylum, borders, criminal justice and police cooperation.

Following a one-day and half closed doors expert Conference, this Lunchtime Meeting takes stock and examines the key achievements, progress and remaining challenges characterizing European cooperation on JHA.

It will also explore and outline new ideas and policy priorities for future cooperation in the next phases of EU integration.

The event is an official event and constitutes part of Finland’s Presidency calendar.

It is co-organised by CEPS, the Migration Policy Centre (MPC) and the Law Department of the European University Institute (EUI), in cooperation with the Finnish Permanent Representation to the EU.

The event will be also webstreamed. The live webstream can be seen directly in this page as from 13h00 on the 4th October.

Registration and buffet lunch from 12:00 – meeting from 13:00 to 15:00
