EU Criminal Law Relocated: Recent Developments
2011 (English)Report (Other academic)
This paper seeks to chart recent developments in EU criminal law with particular emphasis on case law delivered after the entry into force of (and in the run up to) the Lisbon Treaty. It begins by set-ting the scene of EU criminal law post the Lisbon Treaty, by briefly sketching the main changes as provided by this Treaty. The specific focus of this paper is however the operation of mutual recognition in this area and the implications of citizenship rights as demon-strated in the Wolzenburg case. In addition, the paper cautiously looks at the notion of an ‘autonomous interpretation’ of EU crimi-nal law as implied by the Court in the recent Mantello case as well as briefly examining the IB case regarding the scope of mutual rec-ognition in the present field.
