Future EU Criminal Justice Reform

EU Justice and Home Affairs law and policy has for many years been based on “multi-annual programmes” that set out legislative and policy priorities for a given period. From 2010 to 2014, the Stockholm Programme was the relevant multi-annual programme. It was preceded by the Hague Programme (2005-2010) and the Tampere Programme (2000-2005). In June 2014 the European Council (made up of the governments of the EU’s Member States) followed up the Stockholm Programme with a set of "strategic guidelines". This section contains information on relevant justice issues.
