This is the central point of information, research and discussion of the issues concerning enforcement of EU laws and policies. Every month, an expert in the field of EU law enforcement shares his or her knowledge and research via a blogpost. Furthermore, this website provides a publication list of books and articles regarding the enforcement of EU law.
This platform supports the ‘Verticalization of Enforcement’ project (RENFORCE – Utrecht Centre for Regulation and Enforcement in Europe), in which the programme coordinators Miroslava (Mira) Scholten and Michiel Luchtman both execute research projects funded by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research:
- ‘Shared enforcement but separated controls in the EU – how to make it work for democracy and the rule of law?’, a veni project of Dr. Miroslava (Mira) Scholten, and
- ‘The rise of EU law enforcement authorities – Protecting fundamental rights and liberties in a transnational law enforcement area’, a vidi project of Prof. Dr. Michiel Luchtman.
This platform also supports the Jean Monnet Network on enforcement of EU law (EULEN). EULEN’s ambition is to bring academics and practitioners together, to address the challenges for EU law enforcement in a world without territorial borders. Beneficiaries include bachelor and master level students, PhD students, academics, officials from national and EU institutions, organisations and agencies, practitioners, professionals working in NGOs and societies at large.
These projects bring together a network of experts from a variety of backgrounds – different universities, both European and national public institutions, and the private sector. A list of the members of our network can be found here.
