LET'S ACTIVATE EUROPEANS FOR THE RULE OF LAW
Experts, activists and politicians can do it with a European Citizens' Initiative
24th of July 2019 


Strengthening the Rule of Law in the European Union is an urgent priority for all European citizens to work on, as this is the fundamental principle our democracy is built upon and it is currently under threat. On the 17th of July the European Commission unveiled new instruments for the protection of the Rule of Law in the European Union. Are they enough? 

Eumans is part of the European mobilisation on an European Citizen Initiative to demand respect of the Rule of Law in the European Union, with one million signatures to be collected from at least seven different European countries. 

On the 24th of July political activists, experts, citizens grassroots organisations came together to discuss the crisis of the Rule of Law, the existing instruments available to protect the Rule of Law and the European mobilisation to demand respect of the Rule of Law in the European Union.
