In the past few years, criminal justice systems across the world have been increasingly faced with important global challenges in the field of economic and financial crime. The 2008 financial crisis and the subsequent economic downturn have made a number of these challenges painfully clear. In light of the fore- going challenges, legislators and law enforcers are confronted with the substantive, procedural and jurisdictional boundaries of existing policies, norms and practices.

 

The objective of the conference is to present the results of the comparative study conducted at the University of Luxembourg on how the US, the EU and various national criminal justice systems across Europe deal with the aforementioned challeng- es and whether these supranational and national answers are legitimate and justifiable in light of the existing European “cons- titutional” framework for criminal law. Five national reports have been elaborated in the framework of the comparative study, delivering ample information on the German, Swedish, Polish, French and US systems and constituting a source of inspiration for unresolved difficulties and future developments. The conference aims to generate discussion with academics and practitioners from different EU and non-EU countries.
