This library & research service note provides a select overview of the findings of the European Commission Rule of Law Report 2022 (the 2022 Report), which examines significant developments within the EU and individual Member States in relation to the rule of law. The 2022 Report is the third in the series and includes, for the first time, specific recommendations to Member states. The 2022 Report examines developments across four key areas:

  • Justice systems (independence, quality and efficiency)
  • Anti-corruption frameworks (effectiveness of national anti-corruption policies)
  • Media freedom and pluralism (independence, transparency and fairness)
  • Institutional issues related to checks and balances (quality of national legislative process, role of civil society organisations)

The Note does not provide a full summary of the Report. Instead, it offers Members an overview of some of the important rule of law developments within the EU and also highlights Ireland’s performance, including its progress since the 2021 Report.
