European added value of revising the European arrest warrant - Study
The European Parliament firmly believes that it is crucial to ensure a streamlined process of extradition which does not infringe fundamental rights. This European Added Value Assessment (EAVA) analyses issues arising from the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) Framework Decision and its practical implementation. It argues that although the EAW is generally recognised as a successful instrument for ensuring that criminals are brought to justice, its practical implementation has been subject to persistent criticism since its introduction. The EAVA looks at the different problems, assesses their root... causes and proposes some feasible solutions (both at national and EU level). It advocates a holistic approach that includes a number of legislative and non-legislative measures in order to ensure a fair and coherent implementation of the EAW.
