FAIRNESS

Implementation of the Stockholm’s Roadmap in cases of terrorism and radicalisation

Synopsis

The FAIRNESS project promotes a balanced harmonisation of the Member States’ (MS) legal practices in relation to the implementation of several European Directives, namely directives 2016/343, 2016/800, 2016/1919 and 2013/48/EU – when suspected or accused persons are involved in terror-related crimes or radicalisation. This project explores the coherence between the ‘spirit’ and provisions of the ‘Stockholm’s Roadmap’ contrasted with investigative and preventive practices (including Directive 2014/41/EU, and Council Framework Decisions 2002/584/JHA) involving suspects or accused persons for crimes related to terrorism in the pre-trial stage.

Strengthened cooperation and exchange of best practices in relation to the rights of persons suspected or accused of terror-related crimes;

Improved cooperation between legal authorities with NGOs, media and professional organisations in the field of the rights of persons suspected or accused of terror-related crimes.
