What happens when a person suspected or accused of a crime faces criminal proceedings in a language they do not understand? How are suspects or persons accused of a criminal offence informed about their rights in criminal proceedings? This project looks into issues surrounding the right to interpretation and translation and the right to information in criminal proceedings in the EU.
A person who is suspected or accused of a crime or who has already been sentenced can be transferred between Member States under EU law. What are the fundamental rights concerns in this context? This project looks into issues surrounding alternatives to detention and imprisonment – pre- and post-trial, as well as on the transfer of prisoners, as covered by three EU Framework Decisions in the area of criminal justice.
