Eurojust and the European Public Prosecutor’s Office. Introduction to a Historic Reform

  • Francesca RuggieriEmail author


The Author examines the ambiguous relationship between Eurojust and the recently established European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO), by retracing the history of these two bodies. While Eurojust has for a long time been the most serious alternative to a supranational investigation authority, although with an exclusively coordinating task, it is now destined to coexist with EPPO. An analysis of this relationship, mainly based on mutual cooperation and the development of operational, administrative and management links between them, will be carried out.
