Police cooperation unlike Judicial cooperation is a difficult subject for academic studies. If judiciary activity is clearly framed by laws and constitutional principles, police activity take place in grey areas and times when crimes have not yet been committed and could still be prevented. Preventive actions already difficult at State level become even more difficult when facing transnational crimes which has grown in the last century together with the globalization process. This book examines with great details and knowledge how international cooperation in this domain is taking shape.
The activity and organisation of Interpol, of the Council of Europe, as well as of the G8 and of informal fora such as the TAFT are scrutinised by higliting their legal and operational strenghts and weaknesses. The main subject of the study is however the evolution of police cooperation between the EU Member States which started with the TREVI group and the Schengen cooperation and which has been progressively embodied in the EU framework with the Maastricht, Amsterdam, Nice and Lisbon Treaty’s amendments.
Attention is payed not only to the operational cooperation and to the role of Agencies such as Europol Eurojust and Frontex but also to the EU constitutional constraints deriving from the principle of subsidiarity and proportionnality as well as from the Charter of fundamental rights and protection of personal data in a democratic society.
Needless to say that Pietro Milazzo describes this new emerging European policy highlighting in each chapter the corresponding Italian institutes practices and norms.
