This new work by one of the leading commentators on EU criminal law, provides the first detailed overview of the impact of the Lisbon Treaty reforms on the operation and scope of EU criminal law.

In it, Valsamis Mitsilegas critcally examines key issues in EU criminal law emerging after the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty and addresses the implications of recent legislative, judicial and constitutional developments (including the constitutionalisation of the Charter of Fundamental Rights) for the future of European criminal justice.

The monograph focuses in particular on criminalisation post-Lisbon, mutual recognition, trust and defence rights post-Lisbon (including an analysis of recent CJEU rulings such as Melloni and Radu), and prosecution post-Lisbon (focusing on the future of Eurojust and the European Public Prosecutor).
