Annotation: This collection reprints presentations given at a workshop on international crime repression after the unification of Europe.
Abstract: The first lecture calls for the creation of EUROPOL, a European police agency which coordinates the policing efforts of the member countries. Next, the desirability and problems of unifying the different criminal codes of the European countries are discussed. The following presentation focuses on the integration of the five new German states (the former German Democratic Republic) into a United Europe. Three presentations examine the impact of a United Europe on crime repression, with special emphasis on drug trafficking, credit card and cheque fraud, and environmental offenses. The following articles address changes in police technological requirements, crime prevention, police information exchange, and police collaboration, which result from the impending unification of Europe. A Polish contribution emphasizes the economic differences among European countries and the influence of these differences on criminal activity. The concluding presentation, a panel of European police experts, presents ideas for the creation and organization of a European police force. Short biographical notes on the lecturers are appended.
