Post Brexit challenges for criminal justice co-operation
Professor Valsamis Mitsilegas has written a blog for UK in a Changing Europe about the partnership on security and criminal justice co-operation being a key priority for both the UK and the EU after Brexit.
Valsamis Mitsilegas, Professor of European Criminal Law at Queen Mary University of London, has written a blog published in The UK in a Changing Europe. He said: "Both parties’ negotiating positions acknowledge that the UK will be treated as a third state vis-à-vis the key criminal justice agencies Eurojust and Europol after Brexit – while the UK is seeking a close relationship with Europol in particular. Notwithstanding this apparent common ground, the development of UK-EU criminal justice co-operation after Brexit faces a number of institutional, constitutional and legal challenges."
