Declaration of the Hungarian Europe Society on the Rule of Law*

1. The Hungarian Europe Society insists on the concept of the rule of law as a cornerstone of functioning liberal democracies of our time and a fundamental value in the political- constitutional set-up of the European Union and its member states. The rule of law in the EU is a non-disputable, firm category as elaborated in the Copenhagen criteria for accession countries, the Charter of Fundamental Rights, the Venice Commission’s opinions and its Rule of Law Checklist; and the European Commission’s documents since the introduction of the Rule of Law Framework. It is not a vague idea as suggested by its enemies– and there is nothing like an Eastern (or regional) rule of law versus a Western version.
