Judicial cooperation in criminal matters and mutual recognition models in the EU still need to be fully harmonized across Member States. There is a gap between EU law and national law, as standards of protection may not have the same substantial meaning in EU law and in domestic jurisdictions. Other factors also hamper the effectiveness of mutual recognition instruments, such as diverging legal traditions, linguistic barriers, or scarce access to other States’ domestic case-law. Thanks to a multidisciplinary research team in criminal law, IT and legal informatics, FACILEX aims to fill this gap by tailoring legal knowledge to achieve accurate decision-making. It provides a multilevel online platform grounded on a comprehensive comparative legal analysis, focusing on the implementation of EU mutual recognition instruments in different Member States.
