The European Commission is carrying out a study to assess the impact of various ways to strengthen the right of suspects or accused persons in criminal proceedings to be presumed innocent.

The study has been commissioned to the ‘Centre for Strategy & Evaluation Services’ which is currently carrying out an on-line survey on this topic in order to obtain an understanding of the situation in all Member States of the EU and identify relevant domestic case law or jurisprudence relating to the presumption of innocence.  It also seeks to gather concrete examples of where issues arise in domestic law, in practice and in cross-border cases.  This survey is also the opportunity for stakeholders to share their views on a possible EU measure on presumption of innocence and the form it should take.
