A research line continues, which was opened with two other projects (“The reform of Justice: some substantial aspects: civil, criminal and of an international projection” in the period 2000- 2003” and “Internationalization of Justice and reform of the criminal process” in the period 2004- 2007). The former focuses on the broader framework of criminal and civil procedural reforms, and the latter on the internationalization of criminal justice. This third project focuses on the increasing inter-influence of a European criminal procedural law which is prone to convergence, on the one hand, and on which, simultaneously, the weight of North American procedural law leaves its imprint, which in its turn, on the other hand, exerts a decisive pressure on Central and South American countries, whose criminal procedural system had until now followed the pattern of Spanish procedural law. The aim is to form sufficiently informed criterion and to devise a critical analysis around the basic guidelines and principles of this stream of influence, which has been more or less sought or even sometimes not sufficiently perceived, which is usually comprehended under a constant appeal to the accusatorial system, understanding this last system as the one proper of a state under the rule of law. In order to develop this, seminars and international conferences have been held in Spain and Italy, interventions as a speaker on lectures and training courses in Germany and Argentina have taken place, and an active collaboration with Spanish, European and Latin American research centres and universities has been established. Monographies, a direct result from these activities, by a single author or in collaboration with other authors, and articles in national or foreign magazines and other publications are reflected on the corresponding CVs and recent publications on this webpage.
