For decades, the EU has developed a system of criminal justice
consistent with the mixed (sometimes contradictory) tendencies
embedded in its very own structure. The Lisbon Treaty consolidated
some federal elements that have an impact on the future development
of this area of law. The sovereign debt crisis of 2010 and its
progeny have, if anything, consolidated the need for the federal
protection of EU financial interests at the EU level. This book
aims to provide new insights in the federal dimension of these
developments. Beginning with an analysis of the current state of
affairs, the book also tackles the federalizing elements contained
in such issues as the creation of a European banking supervision
authority, the establishment of the European Prosecutor Office or
the enactment of a EU regulation containing the grounds rules of
its functioning. Throughout the chapters the reader will find
constant references to the most efficient system of federal
criminal law, i.e. the US system. This comparative law note serves
the purpose of confirming the federal nature of what has been
achieved so far at the EU level and providing guidelines for its
future development.The basic contention of this book is that such
regulation and its enforcement at the EU level is a fundamental
tool to achieve the goals that the EU has already set forth in the
upcoming agenda. In a nutshell: although the EU is not a federal
state, it has the same problems as if it were.
