Chapter Summary

During 2003, Prof. Dr. M. Groenhuijsen, at that point Chairman of the Department of Criminal Law at the Faculty of Law at Tilburg University, developed a research programme entitled Nederlandse strafrechtspleging in Europa. One of the symposium was to focus on current developments in criminal procedure in the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Germany. The reason why the Lisbon Treaty plays a central role in research by the Tilburg Department is that, from a legal point of view, this Treaty can be described as a quantum leap in police and judicial cooperation in the European Union. Kaiafa-Gbandi argues for the formulation of shared values and principles, because harmonised impartial transnational crime control will be possible on that basis. It is based on shared values and principles and implies the formulation of fundamental procedural principles and defendants' rights, as well as the creation of a European body to support and strengthen defence.
