On 2 December 2013 the European Border Surveillance System (EUROSUR) becomes operational:
EUROSUR will make an important contribution to saving lives of those who put themselves in danger to reach Europe's shores. It will also equip the EU and its Member States with better tools to prevent cross-border crimes, such as trafficking in human beings or trafficking in drugs, while at the same time detect and provide assistance to small migrant boats in distress, in full compliance with European and international obligations, including the principle of non-refoulement.
