LATVIA – Ministry of Foreign Affairs
The European Commission (EC) has started work on the 2023 report on the rule of law in the European Union Member States. This will be the fourth time that the EC will publish such an annual report. All member states are contributing to the report and the EC is also interested in hearing the views of non-governmental organisations and interest groups.
The EC invites all civil society representatives to give their opinion on the development of the rule of law in the European Union and Latvia by completing the questionnaire on the European Commission’s website by 20 January 2023.
The questionnaire, like the report, consists of four sets of questions on the rule of law: the judicial system, anti-corruption norms, pluralism and media freedom and other issues related to institutional balance.
The methodology of the annual report is the same for all member states.
