Meeting with Vice-President Věra Jourová


On 30 June 2020 ELI President Christiane Wendehorst and ELI Vice-Presidents Lord John Thomas and Pascal Pichonnaz had a video call with European Commission’s Vice-President Věra Jourová.

The meeting focused on the topic of the rule of law and other fundamental values that form the basis of the European integration. Several initiatives of the European Commission in this area were discussed, in particular the Rule of Law Annual Report, the European Democracy Action Plan and the Renewed Strategy on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. Possibilities for the ELI to support these initiatives were explored. The discussion was a follow up on the exchange between Vice-President Jourová and ELI President and Vices on the ELI Principles for the COVID-19 Crisis, which were elaborated by ELI and are available here
