Update of Rule of Law Checklist - Informal exchange of views with civil society organisations


On 8 July, the Venice Commission participated in an informal exchange of views with representatives of civil society organisations (CSOs) which was organised in the Council of Europe on the initiative of the Chair of the Committee of Ministers’ Rapporteur Group on Legal Co-operation (GR-J). The exchange of views aimed to liaise the Venice Commission with CSOs making use and giving visibility to the Venice Commission’s Rule of Law Checklist, in view of its planned updating as further implementation of the Reykjavík Declaration. Also it aimed to enable CSOs to provide feedback on the use and impact of the Rule of Law Checklist and proposals for its further development. Introductory interventions were made by Kaarlo Tuori, Honorary President of the Venice Commission, and representatives of four CSOs: European Implementation Network, International Commission of Jurists, Democracy Reporting International, and Transparency International.
