UN Human Rights contributes to 2024 annual EU Rule of Law report

In 2024, as in previous annual exercises, the UN Human Rights Office for Europe contributed to the targeted stakeholder consultation held by the European Commission for 2024 in the context of its annual rule of law report.

On 22 Apr 2024

UN Human Rights' input is a compilation of information relating to European Union member States reflected in reviews by the United Nations Human Rights Mechanisms. The information here summarized also refers to statements and reports of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and his Office.

UN Human Rights’ contribution covers both positive developments and challenges to the rule of law in Europe, as well as recommendations issued by the UN Mechanisms on how these challenges can be addressed and how the rule of law can be further strengthened.

In light of the methodology proposed by the European Commission, the submission is divided in four pillars: national justice systems, anti-corruption frameworks, media pluralism and freedom and other institutional issues related to the checks and balances essential to an effective system of democratic governance.

All 2024 UN Human Rights inputs and analyses can be found on the Rule of Law section of this website, per relevant member State.
