Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* Facilitate and support judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters:
– Ensure the correct application and enforcement of the considerable existing EU acquis relating to judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters;
– Organise national judicial cooperation networks for the EU Member States who do not have them;
– Strengthen the functioning of existing networks

Priorities
* Promote judicial cooperation in civil matters and contribute to the effective and coherent application and enforcement of EU instruments by:
– Better enforcement of judicial decisions through better procedures, case-handling and cooperation in cross-border civil and commercial disputes;
– An improved situation of children involved in civil cases, e.g. through better procedures, case-handling and cooperation in family law areas such as parental responsibility, international child abduction and maintenance;

– Improvement and/or build-up data collection and statistics to support the practical application of EU civil justice instruments
 

* Promote judicial cooperation in criminal matters and contribute to the effective and coherent application and enforcement of EU instruments by:
– Ensure the implementation and practical application of the main mutual recognition instruments (European Investigation Order in criminal matters; European arrest warrant; Principles of mutual recognition to judgment in criminal matters imposing custodial sentences or measures involving deprivation of liberty for the purpose of their enforcement in the EU, to judgments and probation decisions, supervision measures as an alternative to provisional detention, financial penalties);
– Contribute to the European Agenda on Security as regards the judicial responses to terrorism, notably on reinforcing the prevention of radicalisation, especially in prisons;
– Take into consideration issues related to pre-trial detention, in particular raising awareness of case law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in this field;

– Give attention to the functioning of Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) Treaties or other Treaties containing provisions on MLA with third States (e.g. EU-US MLA Agreement, Budapest Cybercrime Convention), including with respect to the exchange of electronic data
 

* Support to the members of the European Judicial Network (EJN) in civil and commercial matters and to the national authorities, courts and professional associations they represent:
– Support the setting up and strengthening of national networks under the EJN in civil and commercial matters in order to ensure better implementation and case-handling under the civil justice legislation;
– Promote better implementation of EU civil justice instruments through cooperation, dialogue, sharing of experience, exchange of information and training activities (where appropriate also in liaison with other national systems);
– Promote full involvement of all national Network members, ensuring interaction at a national level as well as knowledge sharing and gathering of information;
– Contribute to increasing the national substantial input to the Network’s activities (in particular the Network meetings) and thereby strengthen the action and visibility of the Network as a whole

Among financed actions

* Mutual learning, identifying and exchange of best practices, development of working methods which may be transferable to other participating countries;
