Elaine Fahey (City University London - City Law School) has posted Transatlantic Cooperation in Criminal Law (M. Bergström, V. Mitsilegas and T. Konstadinides (eds) Research Handbook on EU Criminal law (Edward Elgar, 2015)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
The chapter purports to offer a ‘birds-eye’ view of key contemporary instruments and mechanisms in the area of Transatlantic Cooperation in Criminal Law. It begins with a brief overview of understanding contemporary Transatlantic Cooperation through Law and then moves to outline key agreements between the EU and US in Extradition and Mutual Legal Assistance, including Death penalty cooperation. Thereafter, there is a brief consideration of Agreements between Europol and the US, and then the chapter reflects upon the latest area of transatlantic cooperation in Criminal law, namely EU Cybercrime and Cyber Security, followed by concluding reflections.
