Research objectives for this Work Package are to (1) define regional integration at the level or regional law, policy and institution-making around the suppression of criminal activity, and (2) comparing the EU, a region where law, policy and institution-making at the regional level is established, with the South Pacific where it is poorly developed.
The scope of the research is an analysis of the principal legal instruments, policy instruments and institutions in the EU and the South Pacific in regard to the specified crimes.
The methods utilised are:
- legal and contextual survey of the most important elements of these instruments and institutions using standard analytical approaches.
- interviews of key architects and administrators of these instruments and institutions in Europe and the Pacific.
