Supranational delineation of criminal repression: ideological developmental axes of EU criminal law

Μαρία Καϊάφα - Γκμπάντι (Καθηγήτρια Νομικής Σχολής Α.Π.Θ.)


The paper intends to highlight the main ideological pillars of the work in progress in EU criminal repression, as expressed in: (a) the founding treaties, (b) their promotion via EU-introduced criminal law, and (c) the case-law produced by the ECJ in its competence to interpret EU criminal law throughout its implementation. To serve this purpose, the presentation focuses on two key fields of EU interventions: penalizing fraud against the Union’s financial interests and terrorism. The research confirms both the supremacy of an EU ideology of aggressive self-protection by means of criminal law, which promotes a purely economistic policy without limits outlined by the rule of law, and an ideology of security endorsing a contemporary pre-preemptive criminal law which leads to the penalizing of thought and mass-monitors EU citizens. ECJ's reactions against this endeavor are sometimes detectable, albeit not a solid given. However, an essential monitoring of the Union law's punitive ideological deviations requires support from both member states and their judiciaries.
