The Legitimacy of EU Criminal Law


ISBN13: 9781509919741
To be Published: July 2020
Publisher: Hart Publishing
Country of Publication: UK
Format: Hardback
Price: £70.00



This book traces the history of the EU competence, EU policy discourse and EU legislation in the field of criminalisation from Maastricht until the present day. It asks “Why EU Criminal Law?” looking at what rationales the Treaty, policy document and legislation put forth when deciding a certain behaviour should be a criminal offence. It reads the EU approach to criminalisation relying on a modern and post-modern criminal legal theory framework, read jointly with the theories on the function of EU Harmonisation of national law. On these basis, it demonstrate that while EU constitutional law leans towards an effectiveness-based, enforcement-driven understanding of criminal law, the EU has in fact in more than one instance adopted symbolic EU criminal law, that is criminal law aimed at highlighting what values are important to the EU, but which is not fit to actually deter individuals from harming such values. It questions whether this approach is consistent or in contradiction with the values-based constitutional identity the EU has set for itself.
