Le contentieux du mandat d'arrêt européen devant la CJUE

Abstract : The litigation of the European arrest warrant sheds light on the reconciliation between respect for fundamental rights and the effectiveness of the European criminal cooperation instrument by the Court of Justice of the European Union. The articulation of these contradictory imperatives, which are nevertheless characteristic of European criminal cooperation, reveals resistance to the emergence of a European criminal area. After having carried out an initial work of reconciling the interests involved, the Court will have to overcome these contradictions in order to put this litigation at the service of the European criminal integration process. In a context of a crisis of values, this litigation, sometimes a tool of resistance and sometimes a resilient material for the construction of a criminal Europe, gives the judge a decisive role in the conduct of European criminal policy. Indeed, by responding to sovereignist impulses through the principles of mutual recognition and mutual trust, it contributes to the achievement of the objective of approximating national criminal legislation imposed by the Treaties. The judge also contributes to the strengthening of the protection of fundamental rights by the European Union and crystallizes the foundations of European criminal harmonisation.
