Abstract

This paper examines three key judgments of the European Court of Justice in matters relating to criminal justice and security: addressing the Passenger Name Record Agreements, Data Retention Directive and targeted asset-freezing sanctions. It argues that faced with increasing criminal justice and security action at EU level, the European judiciary have struggled to articulate a clear position on fundamental rights and security.
