The UK’s withdrawal from the EU poses a number of questions and challenges for the future EU–UK relationship in the field of criminal justice and police cooperation.
The Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels and the School of Law at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) set up a Task Force to examine the key issues, main options and alternative models for EU–UK cooperation on issues related to security and justice after Brexit. The CEPS/QMUL Task Force provided a closed-door platform for debate that enabled a selected group of academics, experts, practitioners, policy-makers and private sector representatives to scrutinise how the UK’s participation in EU criminal justice and police cooperation instruments may evolve in different post-Brexit scenarios.
This Lunchtime Meeting will be devoted to present the main findings of the Task Force Report
that CEPS and QMUL has elaborated on the future of EU-UK and US cross-border cooperation in the areas of criminal justice and police. The objective will be to discuss the main findings with policy-makers, practitioners, academics and members of the audience.
The Task Force on the Future of EU, UK and US Cooperation in Criminal Justice and Police Cooperation has been supported by a grant from the Open Society Initiative for Europe (OSIFE), which is part of the Open Society Foundations, and the financial support of Queen Mary University of London.
