Police Research and Education Network Seminar: International Criminal Justice Cooperation and the Implications for Cross Border Policing

Corporate Hub, 4th Floor Business & Law Building


International Criminal Justice Cooperation and the Implications for Cross Border Policing

Adam Jackson, Professor Tim Wilson, Dr Mohamed Badar, Gemma Davies, Northumbria Centre for Evidence and Criminal Justice Studies (NCECJS), Northumbria Law School

Drawing on research from Northumbria Centre for Evidence and Criminal Justice Studies (NCECJS), this seminar will identify the key mechanisms of international criminal justice cooperation that assist with the policing of cross-border crime, identifying future challenges and potential solutions. This will include: the impact of Brexit on criminal justice cooperation and policing; the ongoing role of supra-national organisations for criminal justice cooperation (including Eurojust and Europol); and the continuing development of new areas of cross border criminality, including the continuing development of “cyber-crime” as an example of offending which can often involve multiple jurisdictions and investigations.

NCECJS has developed a significant reputation for research on international criminal justice cooperation. The Centre's assessment of implications of Brexit for the continued exchange of data with police and judicial authorities within the EU was quoted extensively in a report published earlier this year by the House of Commons Justice Committee. The Centre also anticipated many of the key objects published in the Government's recent Brexit negotiations security and criminal justice position paper.  

Having recently completed two European Commission funded research projects into the sharing of DNA, fingerprint and vehicle identification information via the Prüm arrangements, the NCECJS is about to embark on a three-year Research Council funded project to investigate the policing of the “Dark Web” and, in particular, the anonymity software Tor. In addition to these projects, members of NCECJS are engaged in research on the international sharing of criminal records information, European Arrest Warrants and extradition to third party countries. Dr Mohamed Badar, a member of the NCECJS, was commissioned by the EU and is currently working on EUROMED Justice Project IV. The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the development of a Euro-Mediterranean area of cooperation in the field criminal matters.

The series draws upon leading research expertise within Northumbria University. Each seminar provides an opportunity to discuss research findings on key topics for contemporary policing, reflecting on the challenge of developing evidence based for police practice.

The seminars are informal and designed to promote debate between academics and practitioners from the police and relevant agencies.
