The Stockholm Programme, which framed Home Affairs policies between 2010 to 2014, will soon come to an end. The European Commission is therefore reassessing the future challenges and priorities to be addressed by these policies in the coming years. The Directorate General for Home Affairs is preparing a communication which will identify the central issues to be addressed. In order to gather the input from stakeholders and citizens and to facilitate the discussion, the Commission initiated a public consultation process. Eurodiaconia together with the Christian Group on Migration and Asylum responded to the consultation and has put together a contribution highlighting our concerns and recommendations in the field of home affairs.
