Abstract
Starting from the observation that criminal law is different in each of the member states as a result of which (1) what constitutes an offence in one member state does not necessarily constitute an offence in another member state, (2) even where offences are equally criminalised in all member states, the sanction levels may still vary and (3) more generally, the position of the offences in the entirety of the justice system may vary, the question arises to what extent those so-called offence diversities are an obstacle for EU policy making and to what extent it is feasible to overcome those obstacles. The doctoral research underpinned the need for the development of an EU offence policy, using the common criminalisation acquis as a centre piece. The common criminalisation acquis can help (1) to ensure comparability of crime statistics, (2) to avoid redundant double criminality testing, (3) to overcome evidence gathering difficulties, (4) to clarify the mandates of the EU level actors, (5) to identify the equivalent national sentence and (6) to scope the taking account of prior convictions. The only condition: the development of an EU offence policy.
