EU Security and Justice Law

After Lisbon and Stockholm

Edited by: Diego Acosta Arcarazo, Cian C Murphy

The coming into force of the Lisbon Treaty has provided the European Union with new powers in the fields of criminal law and security law, while reinforcing existing powers in immigration and asylum law. Additionally, the Stockholm Programme - the latest framework for EU action in the field of justice and home affairs - includes a range of new legislation in the fields of immigration and asylum, substantive criminal law, criminal procedure, and cooperation between national criminal justice systems. The combination of the Treaty and the Programme have made security and justice key areas of legislative growth in the EU. This book brings together a range of leading scholars, as well as some of the most interesting new voices in the debate, to examine the state of EU security and justice law after the Lisbon Treaty and the Stockholm Programme. It provides a critical examination of EU law in the fields of immigration, asylum, counter-terrorism, citizenship, fundamental rights, and external relations, and it also examines the evolving roles of the EU institutions and criminal justice agencies. The book provides the first comprehensive account of EU law in this field under the developing constitutional and institutional settlement, and it asks what kind of EU law is emerging in this exciting field.
