Brexit poses a number of questions and challenges for the future EU–UK relationship in the field of criminal justice. The Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels and the School of Law at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) set up a Task Force to examine the key issues, main options and alternative models for EU–UK cooperation on issues related to security and justice after Brexit. 

The Final Report summarises the main findings of the analysis, which builds on desk research, debates that took place in four meetings of the Task Force, and interviews with representatives of EU institutions and agencies, UK officials, and leading UK lawyers and barristers specialised in criminal law. In addition to some horizontal issues (e.g. data protection and the role of the Court of Justice), the Report focuses on the three areas in which the UK Government has expressed its desire to remain as close as possible to the EU: mutual recognition in criminal justice matters; justice and home affairs agencies; and access to databases/information-sharing mechanisms.
