Abstract

In finding ways to enhance cooperation between Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) it can prove useful to assess the experience of cooperation in other areas of law. In this contribution we examine cooperation in the criminal law area, with the purpose of drawing lessons from this experience. We aim to give a brief overview of some key characteristics of cooperation in the field of criminal law. Two specific areas are of key interest; jurisdictional issues and mutual legal assistance. The primary question this contribution aims to answer is; can DPAs, both European and globally, learn from the criminal justice cooperation experience, in particular the one developed in the European Union, in order to enhance cooperation?
