Objective of the consultation

The current EU funding programmes cover the period 2007-2013. To cater for the post-2013 period, the new Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) will need to be accompanied by new sectoral programmes. The Commission proposals for these new programmes will be adopted before the end of this year. This process is an opportunity to review funding objectives, spending levels and delivery mechanisms.

In this context, the Commission is consulting on future EU funding activities, including in the area of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Equality, based on a series of questions. This will give stakeholders the opportunity to express their views on the effectiveness and efficiency of the current funding activities of DG Justice and on how they can be improved to better achieve their objectives and bring more added value.
