Abstract:In 2005 the Treaty of Prüm was signed by the initiators and is to regulate the cross-border policing in borderless Europe. Although already in 2000, Germany-Czech Republic and 2002 Germany- Denmark signed a bilateral agreement, in 2005, shortly before the Prüm treaty, Germany-Netherlands signed a bilateral agreement, both to regulate the cross-border policing. To highlight the changes through the Treaty of Prüm on German-Czech, German-Dutch, and German-Danish cross-border policing agreements, this thesis’s research question is: To what extent did the Treaty of Prüm change the cross- border policing of Germany with Denmark, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic? The research design is a summary content analysation according to Flick (2016), with that the bilateral agreements and the Treaty of Prüm are analysed. The findings are compared with a type formation and subsequent analysis. The findings can be summarised as that the Prüm Treaty did not significantly impact frontline policing and the occurring criminal phenomena around the border regions. However, Prüm simplified and made policing more efficient with shared automatic databases. Also, Prüm promoted the cross- border policing in general. This topic’s relevance is given through the apparent duplicate effort on the agreements and a lack of literature on these cases.
