Korte beschrijving

The principle of effective judicial protection by independent and impartial courts established by law has lately gained significant relevance as a result of the ‘rule of law crisis’ the European Union has been confronted with. The justice system is, however, of cardinal importance as a guarantee for the protection of the effective judicial protection of all rights which individuals derive from European Union law and for safeguarding the values common to the Member States enshrined in Art. 2 TEU. Yet, this principle finds itself on the borderline between EU competences and national sovereignty, given that the organisation and functioning of the justice system remains a competence of the Member States. The main research question of this dissertation, therefore, asks whether and how the European Union is able to uphold the principle of effective judicial protection by independent and impartial courts established by law in case Member States no longer comply with this principle due to the rule of law backsliding occurring in those Member States.
