The Project Knowledge, Advisory and Capacity Building information tools for criminal procedural rights in judicial cooperation (CrossJustice) is a DG Justice supported project.
The Project aims to tackle the current framework for the protection of fundamental rights for persons accused or suspected of a crime is one of the main aims of the EU policy in the area of justice. In this context, legal actors often struggle to identify which legislation and therefore which procedural rights are applicable to persons accused or suspected of a crime in specific cases, both due to linguistic barriers and the peculiarities of different national legal systems.
The CrossJustice project will develop an online platform for advice and support on the effectiveness of procedural rights providing a free service, mainly directed to legal professionals, but accessible to law students, NGOs and all EU citizens.
The partners of the project are :
- ALMA MATER STUDIORUM-UNIVERSITÀ DI BOLOGNA (UNIBO) Department of Legal Sciences and CIRSFID – COORDINATOR
- UNIVERSITÀ DEGLI STUDI DI TORINO (UNITO)
- UNIVERSITEIT LEIDEN (ULEI)
- APIS EUROPA (APIS)

- UNIWERSYTET WROCLAWSKI (UWR)
