The UK-Irish Criminal Justice Cooperation Network is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and led by Northumbria University, Queen’s University Belfast and the Association for Criminal Justice Research and Development (ACJRD). The network aims to bring together policymakers, practitioners and academics to consider the implications of Brexit for criminal justice cooperation between Ireland and the UK.

The webinar "Policy Update re EU-UK negotiation progress" took place online on Thursday, 17th September, 2020.

This event featured presentations from Joanna Dawson, House of Commons Library, and Tania Schröter, Deputy Head of Unit, Procedural Criminal Law, Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers (DG JUST), European Commission.  The event also included a question and answer session.

The UK-Irish Criminal Justice Cooperation Network is grateful to the School of Law, Northumbria University, for facilitating this webinar via Blackboard Collaborate.

The House of Commons published the briefing paper "The UK-EU future relationship: the March 2020 EU draft treaty negotiations update" on 27th May, 2020.  This paper, which provides an update on the first three rounds of negotiations on the future UK-EU relationship and analysis of the draft new partnership treaty tabled by the EU in March 2020, was suggested as pre-reading for the webinar, specifically section 2.10 'Law enforcement and judicial cooperation'.
