EU: Reflection Group report: Project Europe 2030: Challenges and Opportunities A report to the European Council by the Reflection Group on the Future of the EU 2030 (pdf). On justice and home affairs very general and little new thinking. Says that the "resistance" to sharing information has to go and that the powers of the agencies (SITCEN, Europol, Eurojust, Frontex) should be increased.

More generally the report says there needs to be more transparency and the image the EU tries to convey: "must be balanced, reflecting both strengths and weaknesses, rather than an idealised or overly pessimistic account. Instead of focusing on a communication policy which sometimes verges on propaganda, it would be preferable to communicate on policies, explaining frankly what is at stake and the different options available." (emphasis added).

Tony Bunyan, Statewatch editor, comments: "Don't hold your breath waiting for this to happen."
