A Europe that protects: moving to the next stage of cross-border law enforcement cooperation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Three layers of changes are afoot in transnational policing cooperation within the EU. In addition to reform of Europol and Eurojust, the Lisbon Treaty came into force on 1 December 2009, and the Stockholm Programme, for the next five years, was published at the end of December 2009. Each of these developments will have a major impact on the legal and policy framework for transnational EU policing. This article critically analyses these changes from an EU law perspective.
