Mutual recognition of protection measures in civil matters

16-05-2013

According to the Stockholm Programme, natural persons moving around the EU should have the same level of protection in all Member States (MS), within the common area of freedom, security and justice. The principle of mutual recognition has recently been applied to protection measures in criminal matters. The EP and Council are now asked to agree on a new legal framework bringing in the same principle for protection measures in civil matters.
