DEFINITION OF THE PROBLEM
Practical implementation of the Directive was, until recently, lacking in many Member States – despite its importance regarding the fight on terrorism and for a smooth functioning of the European area of freedom, security and justice in general.
This project aims to benefit all who are engaged in European cross-border crime investigation and judicial cooperation in criminal matters: judges, lawyers, public prosecutors, academics, police officers and others who are dealing with evidence gathering and investigation procedures on a daily basis.
The methodology of this project does not merely include the identification and legal analysis of the existing implementation law of EIO, but also gathering of information on the practical application of the EIO from legal practitioners.
The EIO-LAPD project is carried out as a partnership of seven project partners from six different countries: Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, Germany, Italy and Portugal. Each brings its own unique expertise and networks to the project.
