EU Justice and Home Affairs (4th edition) - Volume II: EU Criminal Law, Policing, and Civil Law
Steve Peers' seminal text on the justice and home affairs law of the European Union appears in its fourth edition and is now available in two separate volumes covering asylum and immigration law, and criminal law, policing, and civil law, and as a two-volume set. It provides a detailed examination of EU legislation and case law on the issues of immigration, asylum, visas, border controls, and police and criminal law cooperation, discussing the impact and ongoing development of EU law. This edition is the definitive guide to these intricate, contentious, and fast-developing areas of EU law, and will be invaluable to scholars, practitioners, and students in the field.
EU Criminal Law, Policing, and Civil Law examines in detail the EU legislation and case law on the issues of criminal law and procedure, policing and security, and civil cooperation in these areas, discussing the impact and ongoing development of EU law in these complex and controversial fields. The new edition particularly covers new EU legislation, case law, and operational developments since 2010 on: fair trials legislation; the Schengen Information System; the European Arrest Warrant; the European Investigation Order; the rights of victims of crime; and data protection. The book includes comprehensive coverage of the institutional framework and related human rights aspects, in addition to the connections with other areas of EU law. It concludes with a summary of EU civil law rules, and is updated to cover new legislation on civil jurisdiction, insolvency, small claims, and cross-border family issues.
