Rule of Law Report of the European Commission

The Rule of Law Report is a new preventive tool and part of the new annual European Rule of Law Mechanism.

The report can be found here:
(in all European languages)

The aim of the report is to look at key developments across the EU – positive and negative – as well as the specific situation in each Member State. The aim of the report is to identify possible problems in relation to the rule of law as early as possible, as well as best practices. It is not a sanctioning mechanism. Areas covered by the report include: justice systems, the anti-corruption framework, media pluralism and freedom, and other institutional issues linked to checks and balances. The Rule of Law Report consists of a general report and 27 country chapters presenting the Member State-specific assessment.
