The EuroMed Justice Programme (EMJ) has jointly organised a cooperation activity between an EU Member State and South Partner Countries (SPCs), for the first time using the new Technical Assistance Facility (TAF) tool.

The activity concerned a cross-regional workshop to counter online hate speech, organised by the French Embassy in Amman, the French Ministry of Justice and the Jordan judicial authorities.

The workshop brought together representatives of judicial and law enforcement authorities from Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia, Palestine*, Lebanon and Iraq and Europol to discuss and simulate cases and analyse best practice. High-level French experts presented concrete cases and informed participants about the methods to counter online hate speech used in France.

The EuroMed Justice programme develops the concept of a sustainable cooperation mechanism for cross-border judicial cooperation in criminal matters between EU Member States (EU MSs) and the South Partner Countries.

The €5 million-EMJ programme is funded by the Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR) and implemented by Eurojust throughout a dedicated programme management team in close cooperation with the Commission’s Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers (DG JUST).
