UN Human Rights Office report on rule of law in the EU

The UN’s Human Rights Regional Office for Europe launched its report 'The case for a human rights approach to the rule of law in the European Union' at a webinar on 14 May.

The report makes the case for international human rights law standards and mechanisms to be taken into consideration in the context of the European Commission's rule of law report.

FRA took part in the webinar pointing to the increased importance of human rights law in the EU and how fundamental rights overlaps significantly with the scope of the rule of law.
