analysis of Frontex's 2013 work programme

Friday, October 4, 2013 has published an analysis for Frontex's work programme for 2013, drafted by Marie Martin. The analysis also includes the first work programme of the Consultative Forum on Fundamental Rights. The paper argues that Frontex's budget remains one of the biggest among the Justice and Home Affairs agencies and that its priorities will not differ much from 2012, with sea operations, border surveillance and further cooperation with third countries as the most prominent ones. The paper is critical of the limited attention paid to fundamental rights.
