Cross-posted from the BISA List: Call for Papers: Conference on the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ) at the University of Salford, Greater Manchester, 28-29 January 2010 We invite abstracts from both advanced research postgraduate students and established researchers for our multidisciplinary conference on 'After the Stockholm Programme: An Area of Freedom, Security and Justice in the European Union?', to be held at the University of Salford (Greater Manchester) on 28-29 January 2010. With the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty on 1 December 2009 and the adoption of the Stockholm programme expected later in December 2009, it is time to both take stock of the achievements of the Hague Programme and reflect upon the changes and developments we may expect in the EU internal security policies in the years to come. In addition to plenary sessions on horizontal and institutional issues, this conference will be organised around thematic panels on the various policies that are part of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ), such as counter-terrorism, criminal justice cooperation, police cooperation, borders, asylum and migration.
