Co-legislators closer to adoption of Regulations to promote rights and values in the EU
IMEPs from the European Parliament’s Committees on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) and on Legal Affairs (JUR) voted in favour of the provisional agreements on the Justice Programme and on the Rights and Values Programme 2021-2027. The main objective of the Justice Programme, with a budget of € 305 million, is to contribute to a European area of justice based on the rule of law, mutual recognition and mutual trust between justice professionals in cross-border proceedings. The favourable vote by the Committees brings the two legislative files a step closer to the formal adoption and entry into force of the respective Regulations. The next and final step is a plenary vote at the European Parliament in the first half of 2021.
