This online seminar, which forms part of a series of five co-funded by the European Commission on enhancing cross-border mutual legal assistance and recognition of decisions within the context of detention, will focus on the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), ECtHR and CJEU case law in dealing with detention conditions and the application of mutual legal assistance instruments.

There will be a focus on case law, best practice, mutual trust and recognition of judicial decisions, as well as pre-trial detention, especially within the context of European Arrest Warrant (EAW) proceedings, and its impact on prison and other conditions in the EU Member States.
