On Wednesday, 22 March, from 18:00 to 20:00 CET, the European Movement International and the European Movement Belgium held an event featuring Didier Reynders, European Commissioner for Justice, entitled Democracy in the EU: How is the European Commission defending the Rule of Law?
Ever since the initiation of the European project, the rule of law has formed a cornerstone of the European construction and is one of the founding principles of our Union. On several occasions, however, Member State governments have undermined and continue to undermine the rule of law in their own jurisdictions.
Our guest Didier Reynders, European Commissioner for Justice joined us to discuss the European Commission’s framework built to maintain the coherence and consistency of democracy and guarantee unity at a time when the European Union is confronted with breaches of the rule of law from within.
Welcome by Tom Vandenkendelaere MEP, President of the European Movement Belgium
Keynote address by Didier Reynders, European Commissioner for Justice
