Evening details

18:00  Welcome remarks

18:15  Debate and discussion: Are there twenty-eight shades of rule of law within the EU, or is it simply political opportunism by new authoritarians? Is the era of European democratic rule of law over? How should the EU and its members react to democratic and rule of law deficits? Is the European Commission’s new Rule of Law strategy a step forward?
