Commission calls for strengthening EU rule of law to uphold the Union’s values

March 11, 2014 - EU Institutions

Jennifer Baker is joined by Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, spokeswoman of the European Commission, to discuss the EU rule of law initiative.

The initiative aims at strengthening respect of the rule of law across the European union, which would give greater power to monitor and punish countries, that systematically breach fundamental rules of the EU. “This week President Barroso and Vice-President Reding will be putting forward a framework to deal with conflicts in the area of rule of law, so that we help to uphold the EU’s values, bearing in mind that the EU was founded on EU rule of law”, explains Ahrenkilde Hansen.
