Abstract

For effective enforcement of its law the EU is to a large extent dependent on the enforcement efforts of the member states. The member states are responsible for the correct and timely application of EU treaties and secondary EU legislation. This dependence is an important reason for the European legislator and European courts to increasingly guide national enforcement. Interesting questions result from this guidance. What exactly is the relationship between EU legislation in the area of law enforcement and national policy and legislation in this respect? How is that legislation implemented, and can patterns be recognized in this? What problems are the national legislator and the national enforcement practice and organisation faced with in this respect? These questions have been dealt with in respect to the Netherlands in a research project carried out in 2006 and 2007 by researchers of Leiden University and Utrecht University. The project was commissioned by the Dutch Justice Ministry’s Research and Documentation Centre. This article presents the main results of this research into the implementation of EU enforcement provisions in the Netherlands.
