In cross-border crime cases, coordination meetings are designed to bring together the judicial and law enforcement authorities of the involved countries to stimulate and achieve agreement on their cooperation and/or the coordination of investigations and prosecutions at national level. Prosecutors, investigative judges and law enforcement representatives come together, share information and agree on the next steps – how to resolve legal and practical issues, what actions to take and which measures to apply. These meetings are supported by the infrastructure and expertise at Eurojust.
Coordination meetings are held at Eurojust’s premises in The Hague or via secure videoconferencing, as part of the Agency’s efforts to facilitate judicial cooperation and understanding between the involved national authorities. Eurojust hosts several hundred coordination meetings each year.
