EJN Secretariat contributed to the CEP newsletter in October 2021 on general information about the functioning of the network as well on the EJN experience with the framework decisions.

Background information:

In the end of 2018, Council Conclusions on Mutual Recognition in Criminal Matters (Council doc 15272/1818) had been adopted under the Austrian Presidency. The Council acknowledged that the EJN plays an active role in addressing obstacles for, and identifying best practice in, mutual recognition. Therefore, by the end of 2018, the EJN had already started to discuss the role of the EJN Contact Points with regard to the practical application of different mutual recognition instruments.

Under the Finnish Presidency in December 2019, Council Conclusions on alternative measures to detention: The use of non-custodial sanctions and measures in the field of criminal justice were adopted. The Council gave mandate to the EJN to continue working on this issue and to provide relevant practical information on the application of the instruments to the EJN CPs and the practitioners in the Member States:

EJN is invited to consider gathering information on its website on the different non-custodial sanctions and measures in each Member State. For this aim, cooperation with any relevant organisation, including Confederation of European Probation (CEP), may be considered.’

More information on CEP is available on their website.
