Languages of publication
Changes to Poland’s constitutional court implemented by the Polish Law and Justice party government have caused a serious constitutional crisis in Poland. Under the Rule of Law Framework European Commission launched a dialogue with the Polish authorities on the rule of law and media independence in Poland. This “procedure” acts as an early warning tool in addition to article 7 TEU mechanisms. This article describes the intervention tools available to the European Union in the event that one of its member states threatens fundamental principles enshrined in article 2 TEU. It also tries to explain how the EU’s rule of law investigation could possibly affect Poland’s position in European Union.
