Ester Herlin-Karnell (University of Gothenburg, School of Law) has posted General Principles and EU Criminal Law (Draft chapter forthcoming in K Zeigler, V Moreno-Lax and P Neuvonen (eds), Handbook on EU General Principles, Edward Elgar 2020) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
Why are general principles important in EU criminal law? The question of general principles in criminal law is an interesting one and unites two different but related discussions: one concerning the reach of general principles in EU law as such and one closely related debate on the scope of general principles in the area of criminal law. This gives rise to a third discussion, namely, whether there is anything such as ‘general principles of EU criminal law’ proper.
