European Parliament (LIBE)

Until 1st January 2011 the European Parliament was only 'consulted' on all JHA measures. Under the provisions of the Lisbon Treaty, the Parliament now 'co-decides' (with the Council) most substantive immigration, asylum and civil law legislation but it still only consulted on policing and criminal law matters. The LIBE Committee deals with issues arising in Justice and Home Affairs policy.
