European Citizens' Initiative "Respect for the rule of Law within EU"MEDEL is supporting the European Citizens' Initiative "Respect for the rule of Law within EU".

Europe is currently witnessing a flurry of unprecedented challenges to its founding values and our collective ability to achieve the Union’s aim to promote peace and well-being for its citizens is seriously undermined.  

Polarisation of our societies, nationalistic and populistic trends, shrinking civic space and uncouth attempts at dismantling pillars of the Rule of Law, such as the separation of powers based on checks and balances and independence of the judiciary, are unfolding under our eyes.

Today, in the European sphere, we have the necessary regulatory framework in place to implement gender equality policies. This is a framework that supports the creation of plans and bodies for equality, driven by networks of women jurists whose purposes go beyond the legal domain and are transmitted to society at large.
