This chapter analyses the legislative history, main substantive content, and normative implications of Decision (EC) No 470/2001 establishing a European Judicial Network. The ‘EJN’ has established an information system for the public covering the policy area. In addition, its members, the national contact points, meet regularly in order to facilitate judicial cooperation between the Member States. These functions as well as the Commission Report on the functioning of the Network are outlined. The EJN is further analysed as a completely novel regulatory structure in the field of judicial cooperation. It is argued that the EJN has the potential to contribute to the convergence of the policy area. The chapter however also highlights the challenge of openness and participation for the network, and concludes that the EJN has yet to reach its potential of creating horizontal dialogue between the relevant actors.
