Princeton University has defined European law as a «quiet revolution through law». The concept is even more true for the evolution of European criminal law which, after the Lisbon treaties, found a historic turning point in the EU Regulation establishing the EPPO and in the EU Directive on «federal crimes» falling within its competence. The 19 States adhering to the Euro, in 2001, transferred their monetary sovereignty to the European level and today 22 States adhering to the EPPO, established with the procedure of «enhanced cooperation», have conferred an important part of their criminal competences on this level. With the EPPO, operational since June 1, 2021, the idea of European sovereignty needed in strategic areas where the national sovereignty of individual member countries would be devoid of any concrete effectiveness is strengthened.
