2022 Rule of Law Report

In January 2022 ILGA-Europe compiled a submission to the European Commission’s public consultation ahead of the 2022 Rule of Law report. The submission covered rule of law developments related to LGBTI rights in the year 2021 in 13 EU Member States: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia and Spain. 

With today's infringements the EU has clarified that member states can no longer act against human rights with impunity, says Europe’s leading LGBTI rights organisation

Today, July 15, the European Commission announced that it will take landmark infringement procedures against both Hungary and Poland.

“Poland is violating the fundamental rights of EU citizens and blatantly disregarding EU treaties and standards,” says LGBTI organisation ILGA-Europe as a legal complaint is submitted to the European Commission

The European Commission and member states are duty bound to hold Poland accountable to EU Treaties.
