Chapter Summary

The aim of mutual recognition is that in an Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, judicial decisions should circulate freely from one Member State to another other and be treated as equivalent. For mutual recognition to operate smoothly, it is necessary to reinforce mutual trust. The Commission also recommends practical non-legislative measures such as (1) training; (2) evaluation mechanisms to assess practical needs of the justice system/practical conditions for implementing EU instruments/best practice/ conditions in which judgements are produced; and (3) promoting networking among practitioners. The Commission noted that although Member States broadly support the principle of mutual recognition in criminal matters, a number of difficulties are encountered with respect to negotiating, transposing and applying instruments on mutual recognition.
