EU Post Visa Liberalisation Monitoring Mechanism (PVLMM) Steering Committee Meeting


On 23 May 2011 in Brussels, DCAF Ljubljana/PCC SEE Secretariat participated at the EU Post Visa Liberalisation Monitoring Mechanism (PVLMM) Steering Committee Meeting. Organised by the European Commission, the event brought together representatives from EC DG Enlargement, EUROPOL, FRONTEX, Hungarian currant and Polish future presidency to the EU.
The objective of the meeting was to discuss the current situation in Western Balkan region and to foreseen safeguard clause for the upcoming ministerial Council for Justice and Home Affairs on 9th June 2011. As was specifically pointed out, the debate was clearly disassociated from the post-Visa Liberalisation process in the Western Balkans and safeguard clause would not in any way be related to specific third countries.
