The aim of this chapter is to discuss to what extent and how the Lisbon Treaty changes the legislative framework for the development of EU criminal law by analysing it in the light of the division of powers in the Union. The Lisbon Treaty has changed and shaped the constitutional framework for the rise of European criminal law, and the area of freedom, security and justice (AFSJ) more broadly by placing it at the supranational level.
