EU Justice and Home Affairs

Institutional and policy development

By Gert Vermeulen, Wendy De Bondt

This book offers insight into the historical, institutional, and topical development of EU policy in the area of justice and home affairs, while also being embedded within a broader international context. The main part of the book, dedicated to the EU, is therefore preceded by a section on cooperation in the Schengen area (an area comprising 26 countries), respectively the Council of Europe, without a proper understanding of which the development and functioning of the EU would be hard to fully grasp. Before addressing the actual policy dimension, all parts start with a historical introduction and a sketch of the institutional structures and functioning. Students and professionals in law, political science, and criminology, as well as those interested in European criminal policy-making, will find this book relevant or insightful.
