The contributors to Cross-border Crime examine the latest developments in international judicial co-operation – highlighting specific concerns the new procedures raise for the protection of individual rights.

The Extradition Act 2003 has led to fundamental changes in the UK’s response to trans-national crime. In Europe, a programme of ‘mutual recognition’ in criminal matters has spawned the European Arrest Warrant. More developments are imminent. Across the Atlantic, the controversial new UK/US Extradition Treaty – agreed without parliamentary scrutiny – has traded traditional safeguards for procedural efficiency.

These changes are happening in a context – EU enlargement, the war on terror and the ever-easier movement of people, goods, information, money and ideas – which means that international responses to crime are inevitable. But when crime crosses borders – is there a danger that justice is being turned back at the frontier?

Contributions to Cross-border Crime are drawn from a wide range of perspectives – defence lawyers, judicial authorities, academics, policy-makers and the police. Each contributor is a leading expert in their field, ensuring the reader a broad-based assessment of a fast-moving and complex issue.
