The strategic meeting on drug trafficking, organised by Eurojust, was held in The Hague on 29 and 30 September 2014. In total, 80 prosecutors, law enforcement authorities and experts in the drug trafficking field from across the Member States of the European Union met at Eurojust’s premises for two days of intensive workshops and discussions. Contributions were also received from representatives of Brazil, the USA and Norway, as well as EU bodies and international organisations, including Europol, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), the Council of Europe... (Pompidou Group) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). With a focus on increasing the effectiveness of international judicial cooperation in drug trafficking cases, this strategic meeting followed Eurojust’s strategic seminar on drug trafficking held in Krakow in October 2011, together with the Polish Presidency of the EU. The Krakow seminar called for a multi-disciplinary and coordinated response at international level against organised criminal groups (OCGs) involved in the trafficking of drugs. Progress with respect to the drug trafficking action plan for Eurojust was presented, together with areas in which further work is required: controlled deliveries, (pre)precursors and new psychoactive substances (NPS), and cooperation with third States. The three workshops addressed these areas and gave participants the opportunity to discuss, with reference to case scenarios, pressing issues face-to-face and in-depth. Prior to the strategic meeting, Eurojust circulated two questionnaires to the Member States: one on controlled deliveries and one on judicial perspectives on NPS and pre-precursors. Based on the replies to the questionnaires, in-depth analysis was carried out. The results of the analysis served as a starting point for discussions.
