  Add to Calendar 2021-02-22 9:30 2021-02-23 12:45 Europe/Paris Cross-Justice Transnational Training: Procedural Rights in the EU and Effective Legal Protection

This Cross-Justice Training webinar inaugurates a series of workshops organised within the framework of the project Cross-Justice – Knowledge, Advisory and Capacity Building in Information Tool for Criminal Procedural Rights in Judicial Cooperation, which was funded by the European Union’s Justice Programme (2014-2020) .

The Cross-Justice Training webinar is dedicated to discussing the most relevant frontiers of criminal procedural rights with legal practitioners. In the webinar, a panel of experts will share views, also in a comparative perspective, on recent European and national case law and decisions relevant to the project. The speakers will present salient aspects of EU criminal law in action and will then reflect on the implications on daily practice of legal professionals with scholars and practitioners from the institutions involved the CrossJustice project.

The protection of fundamental rights for persons accused or suspected of a crime is one of the main aims of the EU policy in the area of justice, but the effective protection of such rights throughout the EU is heavily affected by the varying legal frameworks of Member States regulation on procedural rights in criminal proceedings. In this context, legal actors often struggle to identify which legislation and therefore which procedural rights are applicable to persons accused or suspected of a crime in specific cases.

The project CrossJustice aims to tackle the issues described above identifying critical gaps and solutions in a comparative perspective, in order to improve the efficiency of judicial systems and their cooperation, thanks to information and communication technology. We thus propose to develop CrossJustice, an online platform for advice and support on the effectiveness of procedural rights providing a free service, mainly directed to legal professionals, but accessible to law students, NGOs and all EU citizens.
