Combatting Trafficking in Human Beings in an Enlarging EU: Towards a Co-ordinated European Approach? Replacing irregular with regular migration is the best way to undercut the appeal of the traffickers and smugglers. This not so much because all irregular migration will cease as a result of the opening up of legal channels but because it gives enforcement a strong argument that regular channels do exist to fill available job opportunities.

How Do the New EU and NATO Members Prepare for the Common European Security and Defence Policy? A Czech View. "We believe that those who - especially in security and defence issues - regard the choice of US vs. Europe, of Anglo-Saxon vs. continental Europe, or of NATO vs. ESDP as a zero-sum game are fundamentally wrong. Aspects of complementarity between the two sides of the Atlantic vastly outnumber and override aspects of competition or rivalry. We are a part of Europe, and we are a part of the trans-Atlantic community. What that means in ESDP practice, is this: We are all for the further development of European military capacities." By Karel Kovanda.
