Criminal Justice and the European Idea

Crime - and criminal justice - is ever more intertwined on an international and especially on a European level. As criminal justice is fragile, European Criminal Justice must focus on the European Idea and the values enshrined in Article 2 TEU, in particular the rule of law, the protection of human and fundamental rights as well as fundamental freedoms. The consequences of the Covid-19-Pandemic and now of the Russian aggression against Ukraine challenge the European Idea - also with respect to European Criminal Justice.
