European Criminal Law and Justice – Prospects and Problems

Conference held at The Faculty of Law – 30 September 2015

Over the recent years, the EU commitment to developing an Area of Freedom, Justice and Security has rapidly become still more intense. Thus, cross border police cooperation and judicial cooperation in criminal matters has gained increased importance for the Member States and their citizens. With the upcoming referendum regarding a possible Danish opt-in model and the current refugee and migrant crisis as a backdrop, a series of important issues within this field of European politics and legal studies have come even higher on the agenda.

At the Conference on 30 September 2015, prominent scholars and practitioners presented their accounts of the current situation and prospects for the future. Among the topics dealt with were the EU Justice Agenda for 2020, the cases of Denmark and the UK regarding opting in or out of the EU, the common European asylum system, and the proposal for a European Public Prosecutors Office.

Prorector Lykke Friis set the scene for the discussions by introducing the participants to the current situation for European politics and cooperation.

The Conference was organised by The European and International Criminal Law Research Group, EICRIM, in collaboration with The European Criminal Law Academic Network, ECLAN, and The Danish Foreign Policy Society / Det Udenrigspolitiske Selskab
