PRE-RIGHTS is funded under the European Union’s Justice Programme (2014-2020). Addressing the issue of prevention of radicalisation, it aims at achieving better coordination between Member States, EU institutions/agencies, the Council of Europe and UN to promote judicial cooperation concerning the legal prevention of crime in the framework of fundamental rights, towards a more efficient and coherent application of the EU mutual recognition instruments in criminal matters (such as EU Directive 2014/41/EU on the European Investigation Order – EIO and Council Framework Decision 2002/584/JHA on the European Arrest Warrant – EAW);

The CEI-Executive Secretariat will be responsible for the management and coordination of the project, as well as for the implementation of dissemination and training activities; it will make efforts to transfer the results achieved in the context of PRE-RIGHTS to its Member States (not included in the consortium).

The activities are envisaged to increase the capacity of national legal practitioners and authorities to address issues related to judicial prevention in criminal investigations; increase competences and knowledge of prison judges and prison police to address prevention from a legal and procedural point of view; enhance cooperation between Member States and Third Countries judicial authorities towards a more coherent use of Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) and International judiciary instruments to address management of suspects and radicals from a preventive perspective.
