An in-depth study of cross border execution of custodial sentences in the EU
Cross-border execution of judgements involving deprivation of liberty in the EU (2011)
The introduction in 2008 of the Framework Decision on the application of the principle of mutual recognition to judgements in criminal matters imposing custodial sentences or measures involving deprivation of liberty for the purpose of their enforcement in the European Union sparked discussions as to whether the practical operation of the instrument would be compatible with its very objective, being the enhancement of detained personsí social rehabilitation prospects.
Transferring detained people back to their respective Member State of residence and/or nationality within the mutual recognition framework is somewhat precarious in light of the often substantial variety of Member Statesí legal and prison systems. In this context, and following a call for tender by the European Commission, the authors conducted the biggest study to date on Member Statesí material detention conditions, early/conditional release provisions and sentence execution modalities.
In addition to exploring the diversity of legal frameworks, the study also assessed practitionersí views on cross border execution of custodial sentences in the EU.
This book contains the individual Member State reports resulting from the legal and practitionersí analyses, backed by additional information drawn from monitoring and evaluation conducted at Council of Europe (Committee for the Prevention of Torture) and United Nation levels. This is essential reading for EU policy makers, judicial and law enforcement authorities and for defence lawyers throughout the Union. Undoubtedly, this book will be an asset to everyone who is involved in or taking an interest in detention issues and cross border execution of judgements involving deprivation of liberty in the EU.
