Euroquestions | Can European funds guarantee the rule of law ?
18 November 2020 à 14 h 30 min - 15 h 00 min
The rule of law conditionality has become a thorny issue in the negotiations of the EU’s €1.8 trillion budget and coronavirus recovery package. After the fourth round of negotiations the Council and the European Parliament seem to be close to a deal but there are still disagreements on issues like the voting rule to adopt sanctions.
Besides, the outcome of the negotiation may be opposed by Hungary and Poland, who have threatened to veto the recovery fund if they are unhappy with the agreement.
Our Senior research fellow, Eulalia Rubio, will present the state of play on this issue, discuss the possible outcomes of the negotiations and the implications for the adoption of the overall recovery package.
