Area of freedom, security and justice and the Treaties of the European Union

Description of Area of freedom, security and justice provided by the European Union Commission: It was decided to establish an area of freedom, security and justice, the aim being to ensure genuine freedom of movement for individuals on the territory of the European Union and more effective action against organised crime and fraud. Matters relating to justice and home affairs used to be dealt with solely under the intergovernmental rules, in particular under Title VI of the EUTreaty (the “third pillar”). The Amsterdam Treaty “communitised” asylum, immigration and judicial cooperation in civil matters. It preserved the third pillar, now devoted solely to police cooperation and judicial cooperation in criminal matters. But all JHA matters are regrouped under the general heading of the area of freedom, security and justice. The Constitution currently being ratified introduces a major innovation: it abolishes the pillars and communitises police cooperation and judicial cooperation in criminal matters. The provisions on the area of freedom, security and justice are in Part III, Title III, Chapter IV. The Constitution fully preserves the special opt-outs for the United Kingdom, Ireland and Denmark.
