Digitalisation of justice: Commission publishes studies on digital criminal justice and the use of innovative technology
The European Commission has published two studies on digital criminal justice and the use of innovative technologies in the justice field. These publications have been made in the context of the ongoing work on the digitalisation of justice in the EU, which is expected to translate into an upcoming communication from the Commission.
The study ‘Cross-border digital criminal justice’ suggests concrete actions to address current deficiencies in this area. These include creating a new Case Management System for Eurojust, a specific IT-platform that enables large files to be shared in cross-border investigations, and updates for communication tools.
The study ‘The use of innovative technologies in the justice field’ focuses on the use of Artificial Intelligence and innovative technologies in accessing justice, and concludes that better coordination of efforts and activities are needed at EU-level, as research has shown that there are numerous projects in the Member States with similar objectives, problems and technologies.
The studies are available here (for digital criminal justice) and here (for the use of innovative technologies). Further information on the digitalisation of justice in the EU is available here and here.
