Rule of Law Checklist – new publication on major Council of Europe standards


Council of Europe, Strasbourg – Today the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe welcomed the Venice Commission’s standard-setting document entitled “Rule of Law Checklist”, calling it an “extremely useful tool”.

The Checklist contains detailed questions which enable assessing the degree of respect for the Rule of Law in any given country. It is a tool that is available to all stakeholders, including international organisations, national authorities and civil society.

The Commission issued the Checklist as a publication.
