Vincent Glerum and Małgorzata Wąsek-Wiaderek, project coordinator and Polish national researcher of MR2.0, published the article "Detention Pending Execution of the European Arrest Warrant – Dutch and Polish Experience. Some Reflection from the Human Rights Perspective" on Review of European and Comparative Law.

The article focuses on the detention of individuals in the executing Member State on the basis of a European Arrest Warrant (EAW). It explores the scope of Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights in relation to this detention, analysing the Court of Justice of the European Union's case law on time limits for detaining the requested person and the concept of the "executing judicial authority" responsible for deciding on detention pending surrender. The analysis is conducted with a focus on the national laws and practices of the Netherlands and Poland.
