The ELI Proudly Presents Its First Book Published with Oxford University Press (OUP)


The ELI and OUP have joined forces to publish a book on criminal law. Take advantage of the 70% reduction secured by the ELI for its members.

This edited volume is based on the ‘The Prevention and Resolution of Conflicts of Exercise of Jurisdiction in Criminal Law’ research project, co-ordinated under the auspices of the ELI and the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). The study sought to explore options for a coherent regulatory mechanism for the prevention and settlement of conflicts of jurisdiction in criminal law. Currently, there is no binding instrument establishing a mechanism to resolve conflicts of (exercising) jurisdiction in criminal matters in the EU, although such a mechanism is essential for the effective functioning of a European criminal justice area based on mutual recognition. Building on empirical research and a comparison with civil law solutions to the problem of conflicts of jurisdiction, this volume seeks to impact the EU policy debate by proposing three fully-formed models for legislative action, coupled with extensive analysis of related themes.

ELI members are offered a reduction of 70% of the UK recommended retail price when ordering the book for personal use. In order to obtain such a discount, please order it directly from OUP by sending an e-mail to
