Rule of Law: Taking Stock

The debate on commitment to the rule of law among the European Union’s 27 member states is heating up – but how much do we really know about what is happening on the ground? The European Commission’s 2020 Rule of Law Report offers many answers but has one important flaw – it arrived in the form of a 500-page tome made up of 28 chapters. To help with this problem, the Lisbon Council has developed The Rule of Law Dashboard – an interactive tool to bring transparency, insight and ease of comparative assessment to European governments on the rule of law. Through The Rule of Law Dashboard, you can easily compare EU member-state performance, quickly access the evidence and comment on every data point. It includes detailed country profiles for all 27 member states based on the European Commission’s 2020 assessment.
