This project addresses the relation between EU citizenship and the principle of mutual recognition in criminal matters. It seeks to explore if and how EU citizens are currently protected against arbitrary and discriminatory interferences of their rights in the transnational Area of Freedom, Security and Justice. This project will analyse and map the state of the art of EU citizenship under mutual recognition instruments and, from thereon, aims to deliver a contribution to concept and scope of EU citizenship in the area of criminal justice. In order to achieve this, it takes a comparative and interdisciplinary approach.
