3. A new framework for citizens’ security (EU and UK): The agreement establishes, among other things, a new framework for police and judicial cooperation, in particular to fight cross-border crime and terrorism
4. A new EU-UK governance framework for a lasting cooperation by taking into account all the questions that may concern the relations between the two parties, in order to maintain legal certainty for businesses, consumers and citizens
