Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU) states that “The Union is founded on the values of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities”. However, democratic backsliding has taken place within the EU over the last decade.
Join out speakers as they discuss how the European Union should cope with Member States that no longer respect the basic values of the Union?
