Justice and Home Affairs

There is an increasing European dimension in the area of Justice and Home Affairs. CSES has been at the forefront of this development and is in a unique position to use our extensive experience across different EU policy fields, combined with our academic contacts and pan-EU networks to carry out evaluation work in this field.


For further information in respect of CSES’ work in the field of Justice & Home Affairs, please contact Jack Malan.

Examples of consultancy work undertaken by CSES in the area of justice and home affairs include:

  • Evaluation of the Preparatory Actions B7-667: Cooperation with third countries in the field of migration - CSES undertook an evaluation of the Preparatory Actions, an instrument used by the European Commission to support projects in the migration field. The projects were undertaken by a variety of actors, from NGOs at national level to international organisations, with activities taking place in countries outside the EU.
  • Evaluation of the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) - the CSES team examined the organisation of the Centre, the interaction with National Focal Points, scientific outputs and other features of its operations and outputs.
  • Evaluation of the European Crime Prevention Network (EUCPN). The EUCPN was set up in 2001 to promote crime prevention activity in Member States across the EU, and to share good practice - the evaluation carried out by CSES involved an assessment of the extent to which the Network has made progress towards its objectives, and whether its organisation could be improved.
  • Evaluation of Pilot Projects in favour of victims of terrorism - the purpose of this assignment was to assess the Pilot Project, which had been set up to support projects aimed to support victims of terrorism in Europe, and to set the basis for future measures in the area.
