Security, Borders, Police

To promote the implementation of the Internal Security Strategy, law enforcement cooperation and the management of the Union's external borders, the Internal Security Fund (ISF) has been set up for the period 2014-20 and its total budget amounts to approximately EUR 3.8 billion. The Fund will ensure that EU States are provided with adequate Union financial support to ensure progress towards the policy objectives and to address important challenges in the area of internal security. The ISF is composed of two instruments:

Activities which will be implemented through the ISF Borders and Visa instrument were formerly supported by the External Borders Fund (EBF) and the ISF Police instrument will cover activities which were supported by the specific programmes Prevention of and Fight against Crime (ISEC) and Prevention, Preparedness and Consequence Management of Terrorism and other Security-related Risks (CIPS) in the 2007-13 period.
