Rechtsstaat in Lectures – Lecture No. 3

by PhD Stefanie Ricarda Roos

The “Rule of Law” as a Requirement for Accession to the European Union

The third issue of the Rechtsstaat in Lectures-series describes the concept of the rule of law from a continental, in particular German, legal point of view and examines the basic elements and prerequisites of a state based on the rule of law. The lecture also illustrates the implications by the rule of law on state practice, and uses some examples from Romania in particular, as one of the two European countries which have most recently joined the European Union.
