Almost 20 years ago the Tampere conclusions of the European Council played a significant role in the development of the EU Area of Criminal Justice, consecrating for instance the application of the principle of mutual recognition in this field. Today is time to take stock of the achievements and gaps in the EU criminal area and to reflect upon its future perspectives.
This summer is a timely moment to do so shortly after the 2019 European elections, which bring a new majority in power within the European Parliament. Reflections on the future perspectives of the EU area of freedom, security and justice have also been initiated by the heads of States and governments. They started to discuss early May 2019, the EU strategic programme for 2019 – 2024, which shall be adopted early June.
To discuss the future perspectives of the EU area of Criminal Justice, the IEE-ULB, the Centre for European Law and the European Criminal Law Academic Network are conveying an evening conference devoted to this issue.

The discussion will be moderated by Chloé Brière, Post-doctoral researcher at the IEE-ULB.
