One Rule of Law for All EU Member States or Twenty-Eight Different Shades?

Launch Event of the programme »re:constitution«

In recent years, the European Union and its member states have been occupied with a fundamental political debate on the future of democracy and the rule of law. A number of democratically elected EU governments argue that there are differing interpretations of the rule of law owing to national legal or political traditions, using this argument to dismantle democratic institutions.

Are there twenty-eight shades of rule of law within the EU, or is it simply political opportunism by new authoritarians? Is the era of European democratic rule of law over? How should the EU and its members react to democratic and rule of law deficits? Is the European Commission’s new Rule of Law strategy a step forward?

SAVE THE DATE to join us in debating these questions with

Karolina Wigura,
Head of the Political Section of the Polish political and cultural weekly Kultura Liberalna and Assistant Professor, Institute of Sociology, University of Warsaw;

Christoph Möllers,
Professor of Public Law and Legal Philosophy at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and

Michael Meyer-Resende,
Executive Director of Democracy Reporting International

The debate will be followed by a reception.

The event marks the official launch of the new programme re:constitution - Exchange and Analysis on Democracy and the Rule of Law in Europe.

re:constitution is a joint programme of Forum Transregionale Studien (FTS) and Democracy Reporting International (DRI), funded by Stiftung Mercator.
