Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with an examination of whether it is true that 'anything goes' in police cooperation and judicial cooperation 'between the EU Member States'. It assesses whether it is true that nothing works. In doing so, the problems of police and judicial cooperation from a lawyer's point of view are focused. Following this analysis, possible solutions to these problems are presented. Special emphasis is placed on the options of the Lisbon Treaty and the question of whether the treaty may help make cooperation work better. Finally some principles, effectively or with the intention of governing police and judicial cooperation between EU Member States, are put up for discussion, including also the question - resulting from the Pupino judgement - of whether the recently established duty of loyal cooperation may eventually herald a new era of sharing and shaping responsibilities in the fight against cross-border crime in the European Union.
