Future of Europe
"Is the EU a guarantor of the rule of law?" - Contribution to the Online Citizens' Dialogue
"The EU is based on the fundamental belief that [...] in the end we all win through cooperation. In order to guarantee this cooperation, even if individual outcomes do not correspond to one's own wishes, shared law is central. Without compliance with the shared rules, it does not work [...]. Thus, if not only EU law but the rule of law as such is questioned in the member states, the EU is deprived of its foundation. Without the rule of law, there is no European cooperation." - Prof. Dr. Heidbreder
