About the Authors
  • EU Criminal Justice and the Challenges of Diversity examines how questions of cultural difference between Member States' legal traditions are being constructed, addressed, and resolved in the development of the European Area of Freedom, Security, and Justice. The volume brings together leading socio-legal scholars and criminal justice professors from eight European countries and combines analytical approaches rooted in the social sciences with more normative approaches based on legal doctrine. It examines the construction of a common European criminal policy, explores some of the paths that may be followed by the EU in seeking to cope with national diversity in the field of criminal justice, and finally provides some insights into various forms of legal and cultural resistance offered by Member States to the European harmonisation process. In so doing, it bridges disciplinary boundaries between law and social sciences, and draws in a range of perspectives from around Europe.

    • Examines whether and how questions of cultural difference between Member States are being constructed, addressed and (possibly) resolved in the development of EU criminal justice
    • Develops new perspectives on the European Union's area of freedom, security and justice by combining analytical approaches rooted in the social sciences with more normative approaches based on legal doctrine
    • Brings together leading socio-legal scholars and criminal justice professors from eight European countries
