The speeches included in this working paper were presented at the conference “Interests and Actors in European Police and Criminal Justice Cooperation: Legal and Practical Challenges” hosted by the Swedish Network for European Legal Studies in collaboration with the Faculty of Law at Uppsala University. The working paper includes the key speeches by some of the most prominent actors in Sweden in this field. After a brief introduction by the editors, the second section includes the speech by Ms Elenor Groth, Head of International Police Co-operation Division at the Swedish National Bureau of Investigation. The third section includes the speech by Mr Anders Perklev, Prosecutor General of Sweden. In the fourth section, Mr Percy Bratt, member of the Swedish Bar and chairperson of the Civil Rights Defenders and the Legal Rights Foundation, develops and reflects on the important issue of the level of protection of human rights in this context. These three complementary views provided by different actors in European police and criminal justice cooperation are finally rounded up by an academic reflection on horizontal agency cooperation in the field of crime and security. In this concluding fifth section, Professor Bo Wennström, Faculty of Law, Uppsala University, tells us why a theoretical perspective is important. In the two appendixes, the power point presentation by Ms Michèle Coninsx, Vice-President of Eurojust, and the conference programme of April 18-19, 2011, can be found.
