European Judicial Area (Communication)

The action plan is intended to implement the objectives laid down in the Stockholm Programme. It cites 354 measures and a precise timetable for this purpose.

The Commission, however, fails to provide explanations regarding how and why it wishes to alter the legal instruments affected in the case of proposed changes in the law.
