With the entering into force of the Lisbon Treaty the EU was provided with explicit criminal law competence. Of special importance is Article 82 TFEU (on mutual recognition and harmonization in the area of criminal procedure), Article 83 TFEU (on harmonisation of substantive criminal law), Article 86 (on the European Public Prosecutor) and Article 325 (on the protection of the financial interests of the Union).
These new competences - as well as the transformation of the criminal law cooperation from a "third pillar issue" to one area of cooperation among others - raises, of course, a lot of questions. At the seminar Petter Asp will open for discussion on these questions by presenting an on-going research on these matters.
Talare: Petter Asp, Professor of Criminal Law, holder of the Torsten och Ragnar Söderbergs Chair in Legal Science
