Standing Committee of Experts on International Migration, Refugee and Criminal Law

Opinion of the Meijers Committee on interstate procedures and the rule of law

In view of persisting worrying developments concerning the rule of law in Poland and Hungary, our Committee has delivered an opinion about the possibility of starting an interstate legal procedure against these two countries for a systematic failure to respect the rule of law. We recommend a coalition of EU Member States to bring an interstate complaint before the Court of Justice of the EU on the basis of 259 TFEU.
