On 21 and 22 September 2023, the conference From Rule of Law Backsliding to a Sustainable Rule of Law takes place. The rule of law has been under pressure in recent years. Several EU Member States have taken measures that undermine the independence of the judiciary or the protection of fundamental rights more generally. These developments show that the rule of law requires constant maintenance and attention.
This conference is organized within the context of the Jean Monnet Chair on Rule of law in the EU and national legal orders (EURoLNAT) of Jasper Krommendijk. The Research Centre for State and Law (SteR) is part of the Faculty of Law at Radboud University. The Centre conducts cutting-edge research in the field of public law, in particular the relation between law and the state. This conference is part of the research programmes ‘Founding principles and fundamental rights’ (with ‘Resilient rule of law’ as the research theme for 2021-2027), and ‘Interaction between national and international law’.
Organising committee: Prof. Petra Bárd (Sustainable Rule of Law), Dr. Jasper Krommendijk (International and European law), Prof. Ronald Tinnevelt (Philosophy of Law), Prof. Henri de Waele (International and European law), Dr. Sjarai Lestrade (Criminal Law), Dr. Toni van Gennip (Constitutional law) and Chiel Kuypers LL.M.
