What practical problems are at stake in current EAW surrender proceedings? The research project Improving Mutual Recognition of European Arrest Warrants through Common Practical Guidelines of which the three country reports for Greece, the Netherlands and Poland are now published, is a follow-up of an earlier project that led to the publication of The European Arrest Warrant and In Absentia Judgments, Maastricht Law Series No.12 InAbsentiEAW. This project is broader than in absentia alone and looks at various other aspects of the EAW surrender procedure that are problematic in practice. It also goes more into detail as it aims to present an alternative to the outdated Handbook for the European Arrest Warrant. This publication will be followed by a final report containing these Common Practical Guidelines. The current volume contains the country reports for Greece, the Netherlands and Poland as these countries offer a representative and interesting intersection of situations in daily practice when it comes to creating, fighting and solving problems on the EAW ImprovEAW.
