The speech will focus on ways to integrate further fundamental rights in internal security policies touching on issues related to data protection, surveillance and radicalisation.

On 20 June 2014, the Commission published its third and final report on the EU Internal Security Strategy 2010-2014. The report stated that fundamental rights must form an integral part of internal security policies and that fundamental rights reinforce internal security by safeguarding and increasing trust among citizens, and between citizens and governmental institutions. It also stated that FRA should be in a position to contribute to the development of EU policies in internal security and criminal matters. The Commission plans to present a Communication on a renewed internal security strategy 2015-2020 early in 2015. The analysis from the various Commission reports and the discussions from the conference will be part of the preparation for the Communication.
