Security, law enforcement and criminal justice partnership paper released by UK Government

Earlier today the UK Government released a Future partnership paper on Security, law enforcement and criminal justice. This paper is closely related to the Foreign Policy, Defence and Security and Development paper released by the UK Government on 12 September. The UK Government’s paper notes the importance for UK and EU citizens of a continued cooperation on matters such as security, law enforcement and criminal justice and proposes a future partnership that goes much further than the existing, often ad hoc arrangements the EU currently operates with third countries. The UK Government suggests that this future partnership agreement could draw on legal models currently used by the EU to structure cooperation with non-EU countries in other fields, such as trade.
