Judicial cooperation in civil matters

Judicial cooperation in civil matters aims to establish closer cooperation between the authorities of Member States. It seeks to eliminate obstacles deriving from incompatibilities between the various legal and administrative systems, and thus facilitate access to justice. Its cornerstone is the principle of mutual recognition and enforcement of judgements and of decisions resulting from extrajudicial cases. Judicial cooperation in civil matters contributes to the area of justice, freedom and security, as governed by the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (Title V).
