FRA Report on Fundamental Rights Aspects in Cross Border Transfers

Criminal detention and alternatives in the EU: fundamental rights aspects in cross-border transfers’ examines issues of criminal detention and alternatives in cross-border transfers. Such mutual recognition between Member States depends on trust, which in turn hinges very much on fundamental rights. For instance, detention should be used as a last resort and alternatives used more, in line with human rights standards. As well as helping the reintegration process, alternatives to detention are often cheaper.
