This volume explores the main areas of legal development under the so-called 'Area of Freedom, Security, and Justice (AFSJ) 'which was introduced into European law under the Treaty of Amsterdam of 1997. It examines the main subject-matter of the new AFSJ: migration, family reunion, asylum, police co-operation, and co-operation in matters of criminal law and criminal procedure, and includes discussion of the future of the AFSJ against the background of the current drafting of a first Constitution for the European Union.
"A substantial insight into the core legal issues of the development of this major EU integration project. The constitutional issues it raises will remain of importance."
