Rule of law resilience in the EU – beyond legal design

Democracy and the rule of law are the cornerstones of the EU. Join us for a discussion about the social, cultural, and economic determinants of their resilience with experts from across the EU. A preview of some key findings of the RESILIO Monitor will facilitate the debate.

Tuesday, 05 December 2023 09:30 am – Tuesday, 05 December 2023 11:00 am

This event is in the past.

Why are some democracies in the EU more resilient to rule of law regression than others? What institutional and structural factors are rudimentary to the resilience of rule of law states? How could the EU make its monitoring of the rule of law more sensitive to early warning signs?

We will discuss these questions with a group of experts from academia, think tanks, and EU institutions based on the interactive visualisation tool developed in the RESILIO project. A multi-layered model of resilience conceptualized by Institut für Europäische Politik will serve as the analytical framework for our conversation.

Our model incorporates diverse resilience factors that not only include the constitutional framework of the 27 member states but also political system, media landscape, social cohesion, or national economies. It relates both to the institutional architecture of the rule of law and to the environment in which it functions. During the event we will not only see into the key findings of our study, but also reflect on the practice of defending rule of law at the EU level.

About the RESILIO – Resilience observatory on the rule of law in Europe project: Why are some democracies in the EU more resilient to the regressing rule of law than others? IEP will assess the resilience of all 27 member states using a systematic analytical framework in order to deliver counterstrategies to the regression of the rule of law.
