Finally, the European dimension of security, criminal law and criminal policies has been driven by the fall of the Berlin wall and the concomitant radical reform in criminal law and criminal justice systems of many Eastern-European countries. It is beyond any doubt that well-known journals in several European countries regularly pay attention to the aforementioned developments. But those who two years ago took the initiative to establish this journal - the European Journal of Crime, Criminal Law and Crimi- nal Justice - were of the opinion that the time had come to provide a real European forum for discussion of criminal policy and legal as well as criminological research in the fields con- cerned and to serve as a major source of information about those issues. The option of an English-language journal is not only based on the impression that in the majority of Euro- pean countries most of the interested readers are familiar with English, but is also inspired by the idea that as many people as possible outside Europe - both North- and South-America as well as Asia and Africa - should have the opportunity to be informed about what is going on in Europe regarding crime, criminal law and criminal justice. To this end, we invite anybody who is interested in these issues to take up the challenge of this new European journal, and to send us her or his contribution to the debates and develop- ments in question.

Abstract

2 Foreword In recent years the Europeanization of crime, criminal law and criminal justice has become more than ever a reality. This reality partially is the result of the increasingly important role played by the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights as well as the different institutions of the European Community in setting normative stand- ards and in contributing to the evolution of supra-national legal structures. The process of European integration evidently affects in different ways the development of national criminal law and national criminal policies. Moreover, the Schengen and the Maastricht treaties have set certain guidelines for the generation of a concept of European internal security. In addi- tion, it may be stated that in some respects and to some extent, crime - especially organized, professional and corparate crime - must now be considered a cross-border and European af- fair. Finally, the European dimension of security, criminal law and criminal policies has been driven by the fall of the Berlin wall and the concomitant radical reform in criminal law and criminal justice systems of many Eastern-European countries. It is beyond any doubt that well-known journals in several European countries regularly pay attention to the aforementioned developments. But those who two years ago took the initiative to establish this journal - the European Journal of Crime, Criminal Law and Crimi- nal Justice - were of the opinion that the time had come to provide a real European forum for discussion of criminal policy and legal as well as criminological research in the fields con- cerned and to serve as a major source of information about those issues. The option of an English-language journal is not only based on the impression that in the majority of Euro- pean countries most of the interested readers are familiar with English, but is also inspired by the idea that as many people as possible outside Europe - both North- and South-America as well as Asia and Africa - should have the opportunity to be informed about what is going on in Europe regarding crime, criminal law and criminal justice. To this end, we invite anybody who is interested in these issues to take up the challenge of this new European journal, and to send us her or his contribution to the debates and develop- ments in question.
