Contribute to the shaping of the legislative proposals and of the political priorities which are to be defined in the implementation of the programmes
Reiterate the CoR's commitment to fostering the area of freedom, security and justice, including fundamental rights, and to promoting EU citizenship
Ask the Commission and the Member States to involve LRA in the implementation of the programmes as appropriate, in particular in the development of the annual work programmes and in the evaluation of the programmes

- considers that the proposed programmes are important instruments for supporting the implementation of EU policies in the fields of justice, rights and citizenship;

- believes that the proposals comply with the principle of subsidiarity, owing to the significant cross-border dimension to the policy areas involved and the planned implementation of the European area of justice and rights, which require transnational cooperation mechanisms and networking opportunities for the professionals concerned, and typically cannot be achieved by Member States acting alone;

- finds that the provisions contained in the Multiannual Financial Framework 2014-2020 could lead to the pursuit of actions with added value at European level, with the aim of extending the European area of justice and improving the promotion and protection of the rights of persons as enshrined in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union;

- reiterates its commitment and willingness to supporting the area of freedom, security and justice and promoting European citizenship;

- calls on the Commission and the Member States to involve local and regional authorities in implementing the programmes, particularly in developing the annual work programmes;

- suggests that one representative of the Committee of the Regions may be involved in the advisory procedure.
