2022 JHAAN Activity Report

On 23 February 2023, CEPOL, in its capacity as outgoing Presidency of the EU Justice and Home Affairs Agencies’ Network (JHAAN), published the final activity report for the year 2022. Agencies in the network include CEPOL, EIGE, EMCDDA, EUAA, eu-LISA, Eurojust, Europol, FRA, and Frontex (→ eucrim 1/22, 35-36).

As the first Presidency of the newly established Trio Presidency (with CEPOL holding the Presidency in 2022, EUAA in 2023, and eu-LISA in 2024), CEPOL focused on implementation of the recommendations of the 2021 JHAAN Assessment Report. Emphasis was also placed on the joint priorities of the Trio Presidency for the years 2022-2024, i.e. digitalisation, business continuity, and implementation of the principles of the European Green Deal. Russia’s military aggression in Ukraine had a strong impact on the year’s activities.

As of 1 January 2023, the European Union Agency of Asylum (EUAA) has taken over the Presidency of the JHAAN. For the year 2023, in addition to continuing to support Ukraine, the priority topics defined by the EUAA include the following:

  • Digitalisation;
  • Implementating the EU Green Deal in Justice and Home Affairs Agencies;
  • Cybersecurity;
  • Providing information in mixed migration situations;
  • Increasing communication and improving general awareness of the JHAAN network.
