Happy anniversary to the EU Justice and Home Affairs agencies!
In 2020, the network of the nine EU Justice and Home Affairs agencies celebrates its 10-year anniversary.
Eurojust will host the network of the nine EU agencies which operate in the field of Justice and Home Affairs, namely CEPOL, EASO, EIGE, EMCDDA, eu-LISA, Europol, FRA, Frontex and Eurojust. The central theme of the Eurojust presidency of the Justice and Home Affairs Agencies (JHAA) Network will be the protection of victims of human trafficking.
The JHAA Network was launched in 2010 to increase cooperation and synergies in areas of mutual interest, such as strategic and operational activities. Furthermore, it combines efforts in external relations and the training of staff and officials from Member States who cooperate closely with the agencies involved. After 10 years of existence, an assessment of the functioning of the network's activities will also be an important topic addressed by Eurojust during its chairmanship.
The nine agencies report jointly on their activities to the Standing Committee on Operational Cooperation on Internal Security (COSI) of the Council of the EU and the LIBE Committee.
