PRE-TRIAD Alternative PRE-TRIAl Detention measures: Judicial awareness and cooperation towards the realisation of common standards

Description

By promoting judicial cooperation between EUMSs and raising policy makers and stakeholders’ awareness on the topic, Alternative PRE-TRIAl detention measures: Judicial awareness and cooperation towards the realisation of common standards (PRE-TRIAD) project aims to build the groundwork for the realisation of common standards with respect to fundamental rights on the practical application of PTD (and its alternative measures), while fostering the application of the Council Framework Decision 2009/829/JHA of 23 October 2009 by EUMSs.

Objectives

  • This information will be obtained through desk research, especially on T2.1 and T2.2. This method suits perfectly because it will guarantee that researchers find a wide range of data that has already been collected in previous studies, compiling it in the way that PRE-TRIAD intends to;
  • These research questions will be addressed throughout the interviews during T2.5 and
    answered/assessed thoroughly in T2.6. They will also help to formulate/generate the recommendations on WP3;
  • The awareness of judicial professional (judges/magistrates) will be possible throughout the development of various live, practical events, such as T4.2, T5.4, T5.5 & T5.6. In addition, these events will count with the participation of judges/magistrates from different EUMSs, which enhances not only judicial cooperation but also the interchangeability of practices, according to each context, regarding the application of the Council Framework Decision 2009/829/JHA of 23 October 2009.

Expected outcomes

  • Enhanced knowledge of judicial professionals (judges/magistrates) on various national legislations concerning PTD application;
  • Increased awareness of judicial professionals (judges/magistrates) regarding PTD conditions in European prisons and on the application of PTD, its alternatives and application according to each context;
  • Increased capacity of judicial professionals to effectively apply the Council Framework Decision 2009/829/JHA.
