During the last decades of the 20th century, a consensus has emerged that the Dutch Code of Criminal Procedure (CCP), which had entered into force in 1926, had become dysfunctional in connection with both main objectives of criminal procedure. The research project Strafvordering 2001 aimed at answering the question how a CCP would look which meets contemporary needs and corresponds to state of the art doctrinal views, and is coherent in the sense that it offers a systematic approach of criminal procedure. The Dutch government responded to the research findings by means of the introduction of several legalislative acts. The contributions in this book discuss the question of whether the legislator has succeeded in improving the law of criminal procedure.
