Agreement On Operational And Strategic Cooperation Between The Kingdom Of Denmark And Europol

However, it differs slightly from the EU`s position by saying that the agreement “could go beyond existing precedents, given the scale and nature of cooperation between the UK and Europol. In 2018, the UK was the main data provider for Europol for strategic thematic and operational analyses. [39] Despite the clear desire to maintain a certain degree of judicial cooperation, the Uk has behaved in a way that undermines its chances of achieving as close a partnership as possible. For example, the media reported that British negotiators will reject eu demands that the UK be subject to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). [16] Such a refusal would undermine mutual trust and undermine the possibilities for cooperation available. While all the cooperation agreements concluded so far had been negotiated by the Director of Europol, responsibility for the negotiations has been transferred to the European Commission. [47] This postponement could also mark a change in the approach to the negotiations, although this remains to be seen. Taking into account all the above factors, the most likely outcome for the United Kingdom under the new cooperation regime will be a working agreement that would include provisions similar to those of previous standard operational agreements. [48] Denmark was not allowed to participate in the 2016 recast of the Europol Regulation because it had withdrawn from the area of freedom, security and justice. In a referendum held in December 2015, it opposed the transformation of its opt-out into a case-by-case opt-in that would have allowed it to participate in the new regulation and remain a member of Europol. However, Denmark and the European Union agreed on a cooperation agreement in December 2016. The agreement was adopted by the European Parliament and the Danish Parliament on 27 April 2017 and signed on 29 April 2017, two days before Denmark was cut off by the Agency.
