According the following report, the five-year Hague Program officially ends in 2009.

Providing impetus for future European home affairs policy starting in 2010

At the informal meeting of EU ministers in Dresden, Germany’s federal minister of the interior, Dr Wolfgang Schäuble, presented a plan to convene a high-level advisory group made up of the vice president of the European Commission, the six interior ministers of the current and upcoming trio presidencies (Germany, Portugal and Slovenia, as well as France, the Czech Republic and Sweden) and research experts from individual Member States as needed.

According to the plan, the group is to draft recommendations for European home affairs policy starting in 2010, after the Hague Programme ends (cont'd.)

P.S. Interesting how the five-year timetable begins in May 2004 (according to the first link), which would technically end it in May of 2009. Yet, absolutely no guidelines are given for 2009 (although 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 are covered, with what appear to be almost "footnotes" for 2010 and 2011).

Ministers of Justice meet in Portorož on the future of European justice policy


A meeting of the 'Future' High-Level Advisory Group on the future of European justice policy concluded in Portorož today. At the meeting organised by the Slovenian Presidency and the European Commission the Ministers of the current EU Presidency trio, those of the upcoming trio Presidency and those from the subsequent trio addressed the challenges of joint European justice policy after the expiry of the Hague programme in 2010.

"The end of the Hague programme is approaching," emphasised Slovenian Justice Minister Lovro Šturm. "The solutions, addressed by the Ministers today, have touched upon all the most important areas, which should be integrated in the future EU programme of cooperation in the field of justice. Today's document primarily contains guidelines and a confirmation of political standpoints," underlined Dr Šturm, the current President of the EU Justice and Home Affairs Council.

An ever-increasing number of citizens are making use of the advantages afforded by freedom of movement throughout the EU. When changing residence, making purchases and getting married across the borders of their homelands, they need and expect an efficient single area of freedom, security and justice.

The 2004 Hague Programme contains all the fundamental principles of judicial cooperation in the field of criminal and civil matters and represents a basis for the development of an area of freedom, security and justice. Good examples of areas where considerable progress has been achieved are the European arrest warrant and Eurojust and as well as, in civil procedures, various instruments with a cross-border element such as, for example, the European payment order in civil law.
