NEXT STEPS IN THE EU TOOLBOX


  

How can the EU Justice and Home Affairs toolbox be adjusted to future challenges in the area of organised crime and in eradicating graft? Which important best practices that have been identified so far can be applied to other areas? Does Europe need radically new instruments or can the existing ones still be used? In a continuously changing environment should the EU continue to develop long term strategies, or are flexible and adaptable instruments better suited to tackling future challenges? How can business, civil society, international and national organisations work better together to counter these challenges?
