15th Brussels Wednesday Social

Democracy & Rule of Law | What is the role of the EU, & European Business & Civil Society?

The European Movement International, Forum Europe and METRO AG are organising an event to discuss the European Commission’s Rule of Law report and the role stakeholders from across society can play in defence of democracy and European values.

Rule of Law

Earlier in the autumn, the European Commission published the first EU-wide report on the rule of law, which covers both positive and negative developments across the EU. It shows that many Member States have high rule of law standards, but important challenges to the rule of law exist in the EU. It also reflects relevant developments stemming from the emergency measures taken by Member States due to the coronavirus crisis.

The event will bring together EU officials, experts, civil society and business representatives to discuss the European Commission report and how to strengthen the rule of law across the EU.

We are looking forward to an inspiring discussion on 13 November 2020 | 11:00 - 12:30 CET with:

  • Renate Nikolay, Head of Cabinet of Vice-President Vera Jourova, Values and Transparency, European Commission;
  • Carl Dolan, Deputy Director & Head of Advocacy, Open Society European Policy Institute;
  • Mark Alexander Friedrich, Head of International Affairs, METRO AG
  • Joe Lynam (Moderator), Journalist & Presenter, BBC.
