This contribution discusses the Lisbon Treaty in the context of criminal law and examines the similarities and differences between this Treaty and the Constitution. In doing so the paper asks whether the constitutional architecture as drawn up by the Lisbon Treaty constitutes a sufficient solution for the notion of European criminal law. Hence the paper looks at the possible challenges in the present area and thereby also the meaning of the Union’s proclamation of European values in the current wave of the increased focus on security aspects within the EU.
