🇪🇺Delivering on a Security Union.

Delivering on a Security Union: initiatives to fight child sexual abuse, drugs and illegal firearms

"The Commission is presenting 3 immediate initiatives to implement the Security Union Strategy: an EU strategy for a more effective fight against child abuse; a new EU Agenda and Action Plan on Drugs and an EU Action Plan on firearms trafficking. These threats all require resolute EU-level action as they are cross-border in nature and active both online and offline. They have also been worsened by the coronavirus pandemic, particularly child sexual abuse, demonstrably exacerbated by physical isolation and increased online activity. Fighting drug and firearms trafficking is key to action against organised crime, a top internal security priority across Europe.
Vice-President for Promoting our European Way of Life, Margaritis Schinas, said: "Unlike many who have suffered economically from the pandemic, for organised criminals business is booming. Those who profit from causing misery and harm from sales of illicit drugs and firearms or who disseminate heinous child sexual abuse material must be stopped and brought to justice. Internal security is a central pillar of the EU's Security Union Strategy to protect Europeans and promote our way of life and with these three initiatives we are immediately transforming strategic vision into concrete action." 
Commissioner for Home Affairs, Ylva Johansson, said: "Child abuse and sexual abuse online is a repulsive crime. The coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated the problem. Today I can announce we will propose legislation to require online platforms to detect and report sharing of this illegal content. We will also look into the possible creation of a new European centre to prevent and counter child sexual abuse so that Europe can continue to lead in fighting abuse. At the same time, we are putting forward concrete actions to reinforce our fight against illicit drug and firearms trafficking, both of which are poisons to our society.”

EU strategy for a more effective fight against child sexual abuse

It is estimated that 1 in 5 children are victim to some form of sexual violence in Europe. There are indications that the coronavirus crisis has served to exacerbate the problem for many children living with abusers, while reports of online child sexual abuse in the EU have increased from 23,000 in 2010 to more than 725,000 in 2019. Europol found that the coronavirus pandemic correlates with increased sharing of abuse images online.
To complement and improve existing EU activities in protecting children from sexual abuse, and to address new challenges such as unforeseen risks of end-to-end encryption, the Commission is putting forward a new strategy to fight child sexual abuse both offline and online.
The strategy proposes a number of initiatives for 2020-2025 that focus on:
  • Better coordination by immediately launching a study to work towards possibly creating a new European Centre on child sexual abuse. The centre would build upon best practices from similar centres around the world, such as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in the US, and it could receive reports of child abuse from companies, support prevention and help assist victims. In addition, cooperation with industry can continue through the EU Internet Forum and improving protection of children globally by promoting multi-stakeholder cooperation through the WePROTECT Global Alliance to End Child Sexual Exploitation Online is also a priority.
  • Prevention, addressing the fact that research into what motivates people to offend is scarce and fragmented, and the communication between research and practitioners is minimal. The Commission will work on setting up a prevention network, to support stronger research-practice links (especially on programmes for people who may fear they might offend) and create focused awareness-raising campaigns and media material.
  • A strong legal framework that includes complete implementation of existing EU legislation on combating sexual abuse and exploitation of children (Directive 2011/93); identifying legislative gaps, best practices and priority actions; and considering new legislation, particularly to require online service providers to detect and report known sexual abuse material to public authorities.
  • Strengthened law enforcement response including an Innovation Hub and Lab to be set up by Europol; working towards the creation of a European Centre to counter child sexual abuse and funding to develop digital capabilities of law enforcement authorities in Member States.

The new EU Agenda and Action Plan on Drugs 2021-2025

The illicit drug market has an estimated retail value of €30 billion per year in Europe alone. The social cost on lives, livelihoods and public health is untold. Drug availability and production in the EU remains high and in our interconnected world, the involvement of organised criminal groups mean that the drug phenomenon is increasingly global. This requires better coordinated action to address the security and health implications of drug trafficking and drug use to better protect Europeans.
The new EU Agenda and Action Plan on Drugs 2021-2025 sets out the political framework and priorities for action in the next 5 years and include a number of strategic priorities of the EU Agenda on Drugs.The main focus of the Agenda will be:
  • Enhanced security measures that focus on all aspects of illicit trafficking of drugs from organised crime groups to external border management and illicit distribution and production.
  • Increased prevention including awareness raising of the adverse effects of drugs, notably the intersection between drug use, violence and other forms of criminality; and
  • Addressing drug related harms through access to treatment, risk and harm reduction, and a balanced approach to the issue of drugs in prisons.
The EU Agenda and Action Plan on Drugs will reinforce the evidence-based, integrated and balanced approach to demand and supply reduction of drugs, through a comprehensive, multidisciplinary lens that covers the scientific, environmental, socio-political, technological and international dimensions of the issue, while considering the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the drug phenomenon.

The new Action Plan on firearms trafficking

The proliferation and availability of illicit firearms increase the danger posed by serious and organised crime, including terrorist attacks and is often linked to illicit drug trafficking, trafficking in human beings, smuggling of migrants, counterfeiting, environmental crime or organised property crime. The EU has been coordinating activities to counter firearms trafficking for several years, but new threats continue to emerge that require new actions. The new Action Plan on firearms trafficking focusses on 4 priorities:
  • Securing the legal framework to reduce risks of diversion of firearms from the legal to the black market;
  • Improving knowledge of the threat, addressing the lack of comparable statistics on firearms events and seizures across the EU;
  • Reinforcing law enforcement to stop the traffickers;
  • Stepping up international cooperation, with a strong set of activities focusing on south-east Europe.


These initiatives adopted today are part of the Security Union Strategy. The objective is to create a multidisciplinary, coordinated and integrated approach to security. This strategy sets out strategic and inter-dependent priorities on security to be taken forward at EU level in 2020-2025."

🇪🇺L'Europe prépare les vacances d'été!

"En deux mois, nous n'avons eu que 2 nuitées. Cela vous donne une idée de la situation." Matteo Rizzante est l'un des quelques millions de travailleurs du secteur du tourisme touchés par les mesures de confinement de ces derniers mois. Les hôteliers et employés des transports comptent sur la saison estivale qui arrive pour relancer leur activité, tandis que certains voyageurs espèrent pouvoir partir en vacances cet été. 
La Commission a publié les règles à suivre pour lever progressivement les restrictions des déplacements et relancer en toute sécurité le tourisme en Europe. La distanciation sociale, les protocoles sanitaires dans les lieux d'hébergement et l'utilisation d'équipements de protection devront être respectés pour permettre au tourisme de repartir après la crise du Covid-19. Les secteurs du transport et du voyage ont déjà perdu plusieurs mois de revenus à cause du confinement et des mesures sanitaires. L'UE s'engage à soutenir les entreprises et les travailleurs au moyen d'un système d'aides d'état plus flexible, de l'Initiative d'investissement en réaction au coronavirus et de l'instrument SURE. "Comment on aide les petits ? Notamment les acteurs locaux qui subissent le choc économique et qui risquent de mettre la clé sous la porte ? Il faut donc vite les aider à trouver ce que l'on appelle des liquidités." Les voyageurs dont les vacances prépayées ont été annulées en raison du confinement peuvent opter pour un bon d'achat au lieu d'un remboursement, ce qui évitera aux entreprises du tourisme déjà en difficulté de perdre des revenus. Le Parlement a appelé la Commission à proposer un plan de relance spécifique à ce secteur. Les députés européens ont demandé une aide financière pour le secteur du tourisme ainsi qu'une meilleure coordination au niveau européen et une feuille de route pour le tourisme et le transport en Europe.

🇪🇺Internet of Things and the EU: Join the new era!

Internet of Things and the EU: Join the new era

What is the European Union doing so that both its citizens and its industry can reap the full potential from the Internet of Things? IoT makes our societies hyper-connected and more resilient, our daily lives easier and our economy smarter. As it defines optimal policy measures and research needs, the EU supports large-scale pilot projects, while at the same time addressing priorities such as security and privacy, liability and data protection. 

Internet of Things
Internet of Things (IoT) merges physical and virtual worlds, creating smart environments. The European Commission actively cooperates with industry, organisations and academic institutions in order to unleash the potential of the IoT technology across EU Member States and beyond.
Internet of Things (IoT) represents the next step towards the digitisation of our society and economy, where objects and people are interconnected through communication networks and report about their status and/or the surrounding environment. According to a European Commission study the market value of the IoT in the EU is expected to exceed one trillion euros in 2020.

Europe's IoT Policy

In the last two years a set of supporting policy actions have been adopted by the European Commission to accelerate the take-up of IoTand to unleash its potential in Europe for the benefit of European citizens and businesses.
In March 2015 the Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation was launched by the European Commission to support the creation of an innovative and industry driven European Internet of Things ecosystem. This flags the intention of the European Commission to work closely with all Internet of Things stakeholders and actors towards the establishment of a competitive European IoT market and the creation of new business models. Today the Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation is the largest European IoT Association.
In May 2015 the Digital Single Market Strategy was adopted. The Digital Single Market strategy includes elements which lead Europe a step further in accelerating developments on Internet of Things. In particular, the strategy underlines the need to avoid fragmentation and to foster interoperability for IoT to reach its potential.
To meet the Digital Single Market strategy needs and inform about its upcoming policy, the European Commission published in April 2016 the European Commission staff working document "Advancing the Internet of Things in Europe". This document is part of the "Digitising European Industry" initiative and specifies the EU's IoT vision which is based on three pillars:
  • a thriving IoT ecosystem;
  • a human-centred IoT approach;
  • a single market for IoT.
A potential obstacle for the achievement of a single market for the IoThas to do with issues linked to the capacity to handle a large diversity and very large volumes of connected devices, and the need to securely identify them and be able to discover them so that they can be plugged into IoT systems. In this context it is important to promote an interoperable IoT numbering space for a universal object identification that transcends geographical limits, and an open system for object identification and authentication. Some aspects of numbering are already addressed in the 2016 review of the EU's telecoms rules.
The recently proposed "European data economy" initiative (January 2017) also contributes to the creation of a European single market for IoT. This initiative proposes policy and legal solutions concerning the free flow of data across national borders in the EU, and liability issues in complex environments such as the IoT one. Especially, liability is decisive to enhance legal certainty around the IoT products and services. To provide a first mapping of liability challenges that occur in the context of emerging digital technologies, including IoT, the European Commission published a staff working document on liability for emerging digital technologies.
In addition to the policy initiatives the EU has set up concrete IoTresearch and innovation objectives in the ongoing Horizon 2020 programme.
