Adopted by the Commission through a Communication of 28 April 2015. It defines the main actions envisaged by the Commission to ensure an effective EU response to security threats over 2015-2020. The Agenda provides the strategic framework for the Commission’s work in the area of internal security. It sets out the main pillars for action in the area of security, where the EU can bring added-value: information exchange between national law enforcement authorities and EU Agencies; operational cooperation; supporting actions such as training and co-funding.
The EAS identifies 3 priorities for immediate action: (1) Tackling terrorism and preventing radicalisation, including online; (2) Disrupting organised crime; and (3) Fighting cybercrime.
The European Agenda on Security is a building block of the renewed internal security Strategy, as defined in the Council Conclusions of 16 June 2015 (see "Internal Security Strategy").
