25 Years after Maastricht: Achievements, Failures and Challenges of the EU Criminal Justice Area

On 24-25 January 2019, the Gilbert Trausch Room hosted the 8th PhD Seminar organised by the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance of the University of Luxembourg in collaboration with ECLAN (European Criminal Law Academic Network).

The ECLAN PhD seminar aims to gather together PhD candidates working in the field of EU criminal law and holding a degree in law, political science or international studies. It provides a friendly environment in which PhD students can gain experience in presenting their research, learn from each other’s research and develop contacts with other researchers in their field. In the aftermath of the 25th anniversary of the entry into force of the Treaty of Maastricht, the 2019 edition of the Seminar represented an opportunity to reflect on the development of EU criminal law over the last quarter-century and to discuss the challenges ahead. 20 PhD candidates studying at 14 European universities gave a presentation at the Seminar, which also hosted a guest lecture by François Biltgen, Judge at the Court of Justice of the European Union.
