Rome Anniversary: Reflections on the EU’s future on human rights
This weekend European heads of state and government will meet in Rome to celebrate the EU’s 60th anniversary and reflect on its future. There is certainly much to celebrate. Across its six decade history, the European Union has, however imperfectly and inconsistently, been a driving force for positive social change across the region and across the world. And yet, the challenges it faces today are glaring; and the anxiety of its leaders palpable. There are fundamental questions about is identity, its role and its political shape that need to be answered. One of these questions, perhaps a central one, concerns the increasingly shaky commitment of the EU to upholding its founding values of respect for the rule of law and human rights, both at home and abroad.
