About the Authors
  • The ‘Europeanisation' of the fight against crime is a broad and much-contested notion. This in-depth analysis of the role of the EU in fighting crime within the area of freedom, security and justice explores the impact of EU policies in the Member States, the progressive convergence of Member States' criminal law systems, the emergence of mutual recognition as an alternative to harmonization, and the incremental development of the ECJ's jurisdiction. The essays also explore the limitations inherent in EU counter-crime policies and the changes brought about by the introduction of the Treaty of Lisbon. These changes are discussed both collectively and within individual substantive areas in which the EU has taken an active role in fighting crime, such as corruption, money laundering, terrorism, organised crime and extradition.

    • Analyses substantive areas of EU criminal law, helping readers get to grips with the impact of EU policies upon criminal justice and the notion of a European public order in the making
    • Provides a new perspective from which to examine the current state and transformation of EU criminal law and the establishment of a European public order
    • Gives a full account of new policy areas and changes resulting from the Treaty of Lisbon, including the qualified 'Communitarisation' of the former EU third pillar and its impact upon substantive areas of criminal law

    "Through the lens of different aspects of criminal law, these essays provide insight into the European legal instruments that aim to establish European criminal justice... each contributes to a greater understanding of how European directives work to combat crime and terrorism, as well as the limitations these legal instruments currently face."
    --Review in the Journal of International Law and Politics
