A Study on Criminal Procedural Laws across the EU published:

A comparative analysis of their differences and impact on the development of EU legislation


The study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the LIBE Committee, examines to what extent differences between national procedural criminal laws hinder the negotiations and the operation of cross-border cooperation instruments. It is based on a comparative analysis of a representative sample of nine Member States and identifies forms of “hindrances” to cross-border cooperation. Also, several non-legislative and legislative recommendations are put forward for the short- and long-term horizon.
