Strengthening Trust in the European Criminal Justice Area through Mutual Recognition and the Streamlined Application of the European Arrest Warrant
Transnational Training Workshop
9:00 to 16:00 (CET)
The project is being implemented by Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in partnership with EIPA – European Institute of Public Administration in Luxembourg, FTE – Fair Trials Europe in Belgium and AGENFOR- Fondazione Agenfor International in Italy.
The Lisbonisation of the European Criminal Justice Area after the end of the transitional period gradually introduced new EU legal standards – substantial and procedural guarantees – that currently apply to EAW issuing and validation, EAW recognition and execution, and access to effective remedies pre and post surrender. The exact content of these standards and their implications for the operation of the EAW are constantly interrogated before European courts. By promoting an EU-wide understanding of the criminal justice rules and safeguards applying to the different phases of surrender proceedings in a post-Lisbon Treaty context, STREAM will increase coherence in the use of the EAW and create the basis for mutual trust between judicial authorities and legal professionals.
In the framework of the STREAM Project, EIPA is organising a 1-day online Transnational Training Workshop bringing together lawyers, judges and prosecutors from EU27 to present and exchange information on promising jurisprudential and administrative practices adopted across the EU and allowing for an effective, efficient, and fundamental rights-compliant use of the EAW. Members of the STREAM Academic Network are invited to the workshop to present their research and discuss key findings of their research and analysis on national EAW case law (14 EUMS) with judicial authorities and defence lawyers.
Key CJEU judgments will be presented and analysed in detail with the workshop participants. The Workshop will develop interactive debates as well as break-out sessions where group exercises will be performed to promote practical, case-relevant, and context-specific understanding of the ways that the EAW can be used to swiftly surrender person and cooperate in cross-border proceedings in line with the EU criminal justice acquis.
The Transnational Training Workshop is taking place on 12 October 2022 09:00 – 16:00 and it is free of charge. The conference will be delivered in English.

Prior to the event participants will automatically be enrolled to this course, where you will have access to 10 E-Training modules tackling specific cross-cutting issues identified throughout the project research and data collection.
