Our bonds are our strength: the EU Justice and Home Affairs agencies
18 March 2020

In a common area, we need common answers found in solidarity. This requires networks that cooperate, exchange information, and work alongside each other. To this end, nine EU agencies have joined forces under the guidance of the European Institutions. They establish knowledge centres, judicial and law enforcement training and cooperation, training programmes and IT systems to back the countries of our common area, help manage borders, immigration and migration flows, support the development of a common European Asylum System, promote equality between women and men, tackle drug-related problems and cross-border crime.

Every day, these agencies bring European policies to life for people living in the EU, ensuring the values of freedom, security, justice and equality can exist both collectively and separately, reinforcing one another.

What is the EU Justice and Home Affairs Agencies' Network?

The EU Justice and Home Affairs Agencies' Network (JHA NEtwork) has an important role to play in Europe. Their work helps ensure that the EU is well equipped to deal with security, justice, fundamental rights and gender equality. The agencies work on a wide range of important areas, including migration and border management, drug trafficking and combating organised crime, human trafficking and gender equality. Since these areas have a lot in common, the network was established to make use of the synergies and share information.

The network includes nine agencies: CEPOL, EASO, EIGE, EMCDDA, eu-LISA, Eurojust, Europol, FRA and Frontex.
