Abstract

The area previously known as the third pillar has been significantly innovated by the Lisbon Treaty coming into force. This article aims to provide a critical overview of the most important novelties introduced by the Reform Treaty in this field, focusing on the area of police and judicial cooperation. This piece is divided into three parts: after having explained how such innovations were anticipated by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) before the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, we deal with the analysis of the most significant provisions of the Treaty and, finally, in the third part, attempt to give some conclusive remarks in trying to read such reforms as a temporary step towards further forms of necessary cooperation.

Keywords: EU Criminal Justice, European Court of Justice, Reform Treaty, Criminal Law
