Eurojust is a judicial cooperation body created to help provide safety within an area of freedom, security and justice.

Eurojust

In October 1999 the European Council meeting at Tampere in Finland concluded that a permanent judicial cooperation unit should be established to improve the fight against serious organized crime within the European zone. This new provisional judicial cooperation unit was born in 2002 and was baptised Eurojust.

Its mission is to enhance the development of Europe-wide cooperation on criminal justice cases. Eurojust tries to do this by stimulating and supporting the quality of cooperation and coordination between investigators and prosecutors from the various authorities in the EU zone. This means that Eurojust hosts meetings for investigators and prosecutors and provides all kinds of information to the authorities in the Member States.

Eurojust has been located permanently in The Hague since April 2003. Today it has become a very important European organisation that employs a staff over 300 people.
