Addressing vulnerability and promoting security

Within and beyond the European Union, the modernisation of justice systems increasingly relies upon the development and application of a wide range of information and communication technology (ICT) tools. Efforts towards the enhanced use of technologies in judicial systems are not an EU prerogative. Sergio Carrera, Valsamis Mitsilegas, and Marco Stefan suggest in this joint report by the Centre for European Policy Studies and the QMUL Task Force that verification of the potential impact of ‘digitalisation of justice’ initiatives on all criminal justice stakeholders is necessary to prevent problems for fundamental rights and rule of law. They set out the findings of the High-Level Expert Group (HLEG) on Criminal Justice in the Digital Age into the potential impacts of different technologies on the functioning of criminal justice systems, processes and practices at national and European levels and offer recommendations towards better EU policy and law making for criminal justice in the digital age.
