The Justice Programme aims to foster mutual recognition and mutual trust between Member States. It promotes judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters, helps train judges and other legal practitioners and facilitates effective access to justice for individuals and businesses throughout Europe. The Justice programme has been put in place to ensure that Union law is fully and consistently applied.
The Programme is managed by the EU DG Justice
The Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) provides for the creation of an area of freedom, security and justice in which people are free to move. To this end, the Union can take measures to develop judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters, as well as promote and support the action of the Member States in the field of crime prevention. In the further development of a European area of justice, respect for fundamental rights as well as common principles such as non-discrimination, gender equality, effective access to justice for all, the rule of law and an independent, well-functioning judicial system must be ensured.
The general objective of the program is to contribute to the further development of a European area of justice based on mutual recognition and mutual trust, through the promotion of judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters. The programme includes three main priorities:
The Justice Programme 2021-2027 started on 1 January 2021 and will finish on 31 December 2027. The budget for the entire duration is € 300 million.
