Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about future of police and judicial cooperation within European Union. A new Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) policy framework must build on existing policy and legislation. In Netherlands, OCTA input is an important source of information for the National Threat Assessment, which is also used for country and tactical analysis. Existing evaluation mechanisms, such as that for the European Arrest Warrant can be made use of. A direct communication between European law enforcement authorities is needed. An important step is the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, which will have a positive effect on citizens' trust in the EU. It will make the Charter of Fundamental Rights binding on all EU institutions and Member States. It can promote the growth of a European Union that can boast legitimacy and credibility in the area of freedom, security and justice, and that both promotes and guarantees its citizens' fundamental rights.
