Justice across Europe
EU justice programme 2014-2020
The European Union’s justice programme aims to foster mutual recognition and mutual trust between Member States. In order to reach this objective, it promotes judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters and helps train judges and other legal practitioners. The programme also supports EU action to tackle drugs. EU civil and criminal law covers a broad range of issues from insolvency law and mediation to victims’ rights and rights of the accused to a fair trial. The justice programme has been put in place to ensure that Union law is fully and consistently applied. Its mission is to ensure... proper access to justice for people and businesses throughout Europe, particularly when they live, work, do business or even face trial in another EU country. The programme is managed by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Justice.
