This publication examines European criminal justice post-Lisbon, drawing on the expertise of leading practitioners from across the criminal justice spectrum, including US Attorney General, Eric H. Holder. It aims to inform policy debate, increase awareness of the implications of the changes in this policy area post-Lisbon and to flag upcoming developments under the Irish EU Presidency. The treaty changes are ultimately aimed at improving the livelihoods of our citizens and securing the rights of the individual to safety and freedom from the ripple effects of cross-border crime.
Contributors include key policy actors such as the Irish Garda (Police) Commissioner, the Irish Data Protection Commissioner, the head of the Criminal Assets Bureau, the Secretary General of the Irish Department of Justice and Equality, a former Director of Public Prosecutions, a former Attorney General of Ireland, the Attorney General of the United States and Eugene Regan SC, who also edited the publication. The preface is written by Nora Owen, former Minister for Justice and Chair of the IIEA Justice Group.
