In 2013 the European Commission launched its legislative proposal to create a European Public Prosecutor's Office. The proposal provoked fierce debates, politically as well as on the academic level. Many national parliaments opposed and submitted formally their grievances to the Commission. Negotiations on the proposal between Member States are still ongoing. The T.M.C. Asser Instituut held the first international conference on this unprecedented proposal. This book reflects the main results of that conference. It provides a concise background of and reasoning for the introduction of this new EU body entrusted with far reaching judicial powers disclosing important legal and policy implications. Within its hitherto limited scope the existing system of judicial cooperation between EU Member States will change fundamentally, directly affecting the functioning of national courts and public prosecutions offices. How will this evolve? This book will help answering fundamental questions involved.
In this book, the leading edge of basin research is presented in the course of a detailed case study on an oblique convergent margin. Sedimentary basins are rich in natural resources and often overlain by densely populated residential areas, then draw attention of technical experts who are engaged in the field of civil engineering, disaster prevention, natural resource exploration, and so forth. Such a pragmatic viewpoint aside, clastic materials filling basins are a good example of the developmental process of the Earths surface. Detailed analysis reveals paleoenvironmental changes linked to eustatic sea-level changes and the uplift and exhumation process of hinterlands governed by longstanding tectonic episodes. The authors review the latest analytical methods of the gravity anomaly. Apart from conventional gravimetric prospecting, recently developed innovative methodologies have tremendous usability to aid in comprehending the deep three-dimensional structure of the sedimentary basins. Combining stratigraphic/sedimentological data of numerous boreholes and high resolution profiles of the reflection seismic survey, the authors visualize the deep interior of a fault-related basin in the Japanese Islands as an ideal example that has been studied by many researches and never been understood in a multidisciplinary way. Surely, this book provides audiences with an integrated vision of the basin evolution processes under the influence of dynamic spatial and temporal changes in tectonic regimes on active plate margins.
