Commission proposes tool to fight ‘systemic threats’ to EU rule of law

The European Commission adopted on Tuesday a new framework to address systemic threats to the rule of law in any of the EU's 28 Member States.

The new framework establishes an early warning tool allowing the Commission to enter into a dialogue with the Member State concerned to prevent the escalation of systemic threats to the rule of law.
