How will the incoming von der Leyen Commission strengthen the rule of law in the EU? Democracy Reporting International and Verfassungsblog explore this challenge in an Online Symposium – a series of linked articles dealing with topics ranging from fundamental questions on values of the EU to the details of specific actions by the Commission.

The symposium, hosted by Verfassungsblog, includes the following contributions:

The symposium will also include a forthcoming piece by professor Joelle Grogan (Middlesex University) on how Brexit figures into EU’s action on the rule of law.

This symposium is part of the re:constitution – Exchange and Analysis on Democracy and the Rule of Law in Europe programme designed to promote better public debate on the rule of law and democracy in Europe. re:constitution is implemented by Democracy Reporting International and the Forum Transregionale Studien with funding from Stiftung Mercator.
