A working group of G8 countries that debates and develops issues and strategies relating to public security in an effort to combat terrorism and transnational crime. The group also addresses legal themes and issues relating to transport. One of its Sub-Groups is on Migration and in particular on tackling illegal immigration within the framework, for example, of trafficking.

1. The group prepares projects which are then submitted to the member countries and debated in the working sub-groups in order to ensure a shared approach in the G8 countries. It does this by working on "best practices" and on recommendations designed to safeguard public security. The conclusions reached in the course of these activities are then submitted for approval to the G8 group's interior and justice ministers at their annual meeting.
2. G8 countries are Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States with the European Commission also attending meetings.
