EU drug markets report - Social problems - EU Bookshop

EU drug markets report - Social problems - EU Bookshop | European Documentation Centre (EDC) | Scoop.it
Strategic overview : 2016
University of Nicosia Library's insight:
New in #European #Documentation Centre ( #EDC ) University of Nicosia #Library, #Cyprus “#EU #drug #markets report”

This report explores the concept of the illicit drug market within the broader context of changing patterns of drug use, cultural and social factors and links to wider criminality. Drug markets continue to be one of the most profitable areas for organised crime groups (OCGs) and it is estimated that EU citizens spend over EUR 24 billion (range EUR 21 to 31 billion) every year on illicit drugs. The impacts that drug markets have on society are correspondingly large and go beyond the harms caused by drug use. They include involvement in other types of criminal activities and in terrorism; impacts on legal businesses and the wider economy; strain on and corruption of government institutions; and impacts on wider society. Three overarching themes emerge from our analysis: - The increasing organisational and technical complexity, interconnectedness and specialisation of groups involved in drug markets. - Globalisation and technology are accelerating the rate of change in the drug market. - Drug market-related activities are concentrated in a number of established and emerging geographical locations. These developments challenge those trying to respond to the problems created by the illicit drug market and the associated wider problems and suggest that: nn A systemic analysis of drug market business models will be helpful for both operational and policy purposes. - Partnerships between national authorities and with industry are becoming ever more important, as is engagement with international organisations and third countries. - Efficient use of resources can be achieved through the identification and targeting of geographical locations where drug market-related activities are concentrated. - Continuing recognition of the value of a strategic response, informed by sound information used to identify new opportunities as well as challenges, is essential

Fundamental rights - Fundamental rights - EU Bookshop

Fundamental rights - Fundamental rights - EU Bookshop | European Documentation Centre (EDC) | Scoop.it

European Union (EU) Member States and institutions introduced a number of legal and policy measures in 2014 to safeguard fundamental rights in the EU. Notwithstanding these efforts, a great deal remains to be done, and it can be seen that the situation in some areas is alarming: the number of migrants rescued or apprehended at sea as they were trying to reach Europe’s borders quadrupled over 2013; more than a quarter of children in the EU are at risk of poverty or social exclusion; and an increasing number of political parties use xenophobic and anti-immigrant rhetoric in their campaigns, potentially increasing some people’s vulnerability to becoming victims of crime or hate crime. In 2014, the EU reassessed its strategy and priorities for the coming years. The new European Commission announced its 10 priorities, among which a new approach to legal migration into the EU was recognised as one of the key aspects of the Commission’s agenda on migration. Together with immigration, integration policies were identified as a crucial factor for creating inclusive societies. A new regulation on structural and investment funds that came into force in 2014 is a promising tool to help the EU move towards greater social inclusion and reduce discrimination and unequal treatment. The end of the transition period for the Framework Decision on Combating Racism and Xenophobia will allow the European Commission to launch infringement procedures against EU Member States that do not comply with the provisions of the framework decision. At the same time, in annulling the Data Retention Directive, the Court of Justice of the EU recognised privacy to be a vital right. The year closed with a celebration of the fifth anniversary of the Charter of Fundamental Rights, which is the cornerstone of rights protection for everyone in the EU. FRA’s annual report this year examines fundamental rights-related developments in equality and non-discrimination; racism, xenophobia and related intolerance; Roma integration; asylum, borders, immigration and integration; information society, privacy and data protection; the rights of the child; access to justice including rights of crime victims; and the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and its use by Member States. This year’s Focus section hones in on fundamental rights indicators – one of the tools that can be used to enhance the fundamental rights commitments of the EU and its Member States. Mainstreaming fundamental rights can help turn words into action, especially if linked to relevant indicators. The Focus thus examines how a rights-based indicator framework could support relevant actors in policy evaluation and design, thus consolidating Europe’s fundamental rights culture and helping to guarantee that fundamental rights are upheld in practice

The 2008 financial crisis focused attention on the credit rating agencies and their impact on financial markets. At the time, there was very little regulation of the agencies in Europe. In 2011, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) was created to register, monitor and supervise them. This report examines whether ESMA has successfully established itself as the credit rating agencies watchdog for the EU. We conclude that while ESMA has laid down good foundations, its rules and guidelines are not yet complete and significant risks remain to be addressed in the future

The Court’s assessment of EUPOL Afghanistan, a civilian Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) mission, found that it had been partly effective in delivering its mandate. While external factors may provide some explanation for this, other shortcomings can be attributed to EUPOL itself. The Court makes a number of recommendations, applicable not only to EUPOL Afghanistan, but also to other CSDP missions aiming to improve their effectiveness and the sustainability of the outcomes achieved

"The integrity and implementation of the EU ETS, Special report No 06, 2015" The EU ETS is the cornerstone of the EU’s climate policy and is often quoted as a model for emerging climate change policy in the world. The Court found significant weaknesses in implementation during phase II (2008–12) and problems with the robustness of the framework for protecting market integrity. Market regulation and oversight, the legal status of allowances, and systems for processing fundamental EU ETS information needed improvement. Member States should enhance their implementation of the control framework and sanctions. The Court makes a number of recommendations aimed at improving the integrity and implementation of the scheme
