EUThis 25th of March 2017 we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, which marks the beginning of the process of European integration that led to the creation of the European Union.

What began as a project of peace building through economic integration quickly evolved to be the most ambitious process of peaceful social, political and juridical harmonisation of sovereign nations ever to be found in modern history.

MEDEL – MagistratsEuropéens pour la Démocratie et les Libertés, founded in 1985, has since the beginning inscribed within in its goals “the establishment of a common debate among magistrates from different Countries to support European community integration, in view of the creation of a European political union”.

MEDELAdding to the "Declaration of Paris"
(Conseil d'Administration MEDEL, Paris, 22.10.2016).

Every day, as helpless onlookers, we see the terrible images of people dying at sea or on the frontiers of our countries. All of us have tales of emigration in our family trees, and all human beings are a result of the will, or the need, to change our location, our nation, or our continent. The history of mankind is nothing less than the history of migration.
