A European agenda on security state of play: April 2017

Security has been a constant theme since the beginning of this Commission’s mandate from President Juncker’s Guidelines of July 2014 to the latest State of the Union address of September 2016. The European Agenda on Security guides the Commission’s work in this area, setting out the main actions to ensure an effective EU response to terrorism and security threats in the European Union. President Juncker also created a specific Commissioner portfolio for the Security Union to ensure an effective implementation of the commitments made.
