Other Acts COM(2020) 580 (30/09/2020)

Type: Acts of the European Union: Communication "Rule of Law Report 2020 - The situation of the rule of law in the European Union"

Authority: European Authorities - European Union: European Commission

Date: 09/30/2020

Subject: The report takes stock of rule of law developments in the Member States. It highlights that many Member States have high rule of law standards and are recognised, including globally, as providing best practices in applying the key principles of the rule of law. However, the report also finds important challenges, when judicial independence is under pressure, when systems have not proven sufficiently resilient to corruption, when threats to media freedom and pluralism endanger democratic accountability, or when there have been challenges to the checks and balances essential to an effective system. This first rule of law report is the foundation stone for a new and dynamic process, involving a continued dialogue with Member States, the European Parliament and national parliaments as well as other stakeholders at national and EU level
