EU Criminal Law

Valsamis Mitsilegas

The book provides in-depth analysis of the key elements of the EU’s role in criminal matters. The new edition’s comprehensive coverage includes questions of EU competence; judicial co-operation; mutual recognition; rights of the defendant/victim; European bodies and agencies and the development of surveillance, data gathering, and exchange mechanisms. In addition the external dimension in criminal matters (including transatlantic counter-terrorism cooperation) is given detailed treatment and the constitutional and fundamental rights implications are highlighted through-out.

Covering all key principles, with clear explanation and rigorous analysis, it gives all students of the subject a strong understanding of this fascinating but complex field.
