Thesis Title:

Social rights in the context of the European Arrest Warrant

Supervisor: 

Dr Marie-Luce Paris

Abstract:

Neža’s PhD project explores the issue of social rights in the context of the European Arrest Warrant.

Individuals that are transferred on the basis of a European Arrest Warrant often find themselves facing poor detention conditions in the issuing Member State. These detention conditions do not always reach the threshold of a breach of the prohibition of inhuman and degrading treatment but can nevertheless still be very poor. Neža’s PhD project examines how and to what extent the issue of poor detention conditions in the context of the European Arrest Warrant can be addressed by the EU through social rights, such as the right to healthcare, the right to education and the right to an adequate standard of living.
