6. Close cooperation with EU partners
As an agency of the European Union, Eurojust is financed by the EU budget and its activities are subject to the scrutiny of the European Parliament. Further, the European Commission is represented in Eurojust’s governance structure.
As a centre of expertise in cross-border judicial cooperation, Eurojust represents the perspective of judicial practitioners in discussions shaping the criminal justice agenda and maintains close relationships with key actors in the EU internal security chain, including the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council. Eurojust also works closely with EU agencies and bodies in the Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) domain, including the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO), Europol and the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF).
