Security Sector Reform and the migration sector in Europe
Ground floor, 1 Place du Congres, Brussels
12 – 14h
9 July 2013
The past few years have seen an economic crisis as well as an increase in conflict at our region’s borders. Migration, asylum and trafficking in human beings (THB), caused by the economic crisis and conflict, the related human security aspects and how this affects the region’s security, are high on the agenda.
Trafficking is increasing in Europe and is only 2nd to drug trade as the biggest source of illicit profits for criminals. Thus it is only logical that work on democracy, security, governance and the rule-of-law be put into play to better address migration and asylum and to support the fight against and prevention of THB. This panel will look at the state-of-play in how SSR is addressing this issue, the human security framework and current EU mechanisms in the migration sector.
