Abstract

The rule of law (Chapters 23 and 24 of the Acquis) is at the heart of the EU accession process. Given recent experience with backsliding on rule of law, the European Commission has firm expectations of countries that aspire to EU membership when it comes to compliance with EU principles relating to the judiciary, fundamental rights, and the rule of law. Areas of focus include improving judicial independence, both conceptually and functionally, and strengthening accountability and efficiency of judiciary. Judicial independence and integrity are under threat in several EU member states, including Hungary and Poland. Judicial crises in the EU jeopardize essential principle of mutual recognition in judicial matters and free movement of goods, services, people and capital. The recent decision of the Irish high judge to refuse to extradite a suspected drugs trafficker to Poland due to concerns about the integrity of the Polish justice system, re-confirms the relevance of the rule of law for the EU. These recent experiences will shape the future Commission approach to accession countries and how strict they should be in the implementation of EU acquis and standards.
