RULE OF LAW IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

12-12-2020

Attached are the conclusions of the of  European Council meeting of 10-11 December 2020. The first item concerned the rule of law and the problem of the link between the Budget for the next seven years and violations of the rule of law in memberstates: Poland and Hungary in particular. The Council, correctly in my opinion, found a compromise solution, though complex and difficult to read.

The problem  results from article 7 in the Lisbon Treaty, wherein - wrongly - the European Council was given the task to deal with such violations. It ought to be the task of the European Court of Justice. Politicising the supervision is bouind to create problems as it did with Poland and Hungary.

Neither Justice nor Order

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

This fifth and final volume offers a critical assessment of the state of the law of nations. In the twenty first century the world needs true global law anchored in the dignity of the human person rather than weak international law built on the interests of major sovereign states.
