Chapter Summary

The European Union, keeping to the traditional principles of conventional international law, dealt with judicial assistance within the framework provided by the Third Pillar, at first rather timidly through its new normative instruments; and then more effectively through the traditional route of conventions. The two main aims of the EU Convention 2000 are, on the one hand, 'ensuring that mutual assistance between Member States is provided in a fast and efficient manner'; 29 and on the other, guaranteeing that this is done in a way that is: 'compatible with the basic principles of their national law and in compliance with the individual rights and principles of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights of 1950'. The new model of judicial cooperation based on the principle of mutual recognition is complemented by another principle affirmed in the Hague Programme: namely the principle of availability of information.
