On 30 September 2020, the European Commission adopted the 2020 Rule of Law Report. The Report sets out key elements of the rule of law developments in the European Union and presents Member State-specific assessments in 27 country chapters. It is at the centre of the new European rule of law mechanism, designed as a yearly cycle to prevent rule of law problems from emerging or deepening.

The aim of the new Rule of Law Report is to enlarge the existing EU toolbox with a new preventive tool and kick-start an inclusive debate and rule of law culture across the EU. It should help all Member States examine how challenges can be addressed, how they can learn from each other's experiences, and show how the rule of law can be further strengthened in full respect of national constitutional systems and traditions.
