CRIMPREV is a Coordination Action proposal submitted by an interdisciplinary consortium of 30 participants from 10 European countries. Most of these participants have a previous experience in European cooperation through their participation in 3 existing networks (GERN, IAHCCJ, EFUS). On the whole, little is known about the variety of situations, policies and scholarly analyses within the European Union. Each State generally tends to confine itself to mostly single/national references, and the Commission itself seems to have some difficulty in acknowledging the variety of analyses across the European scene.
Researchers themselves find it difficult to get an overview of the diversity of national scientific productions, in spite of efforts by the various scientific networks. However it is this diversity itself makes the European Union a natural laboratory for comparative work, which may be used to produce added value in scholarship.
