Chapter Summary

The aim of this chapter is to demonstrate that the European Union should take advantage of the Swiss experience of cooperation in criminal matters between judicial authorities from different jurisdictions. To that aim it starts with a short introduction on the principle of mutual recognition in the European Union, and the current state of play of the implementing process. After that, the chapter gives an overview of the main characteristics of Switzerland and Swiss federalism, and subsequently focuses on the judicial cooperation in criminal matters, especially the cooperation between cantonal authorities. A reflection on European Union developments from a Swiss perspective is discussed. It has been shown that the Swiss example provides inspiration for the European Union on two points in particular.
