The outcomes collected from Assises de la Justice will be considered in the preparation of future justice initiatives.

A two day conference,聽Assises de la Justice Event, will be organised as a part of this initiative to discuss the various aspects of future EU justice policy. The event will be held on 22-23 November in Brussels, gathering together judges, lawyers, scholars, and policy-makers.

DG Justice has prepared five discussion papers on civil law, criminal law, administrative law and national administrations, rule of law and fundamental rights and invites anyone interested in the issues to submit their input.

Viviane Reding, the Vice-President of the EC and the EU鈥檚 Justice Commissioner expressed:聽鈥淲e have come a long way in developing a European area of Justice, in just a short space of time. Indeed, justice policy has emerged into the limelight as a field of high activity at European level – comparable to the internal market in the 1990s. But there is more work to be done.”

Fundamental rights are the centre of interest for the organisations working with people with disabilities. The European Commission demands citizens how to enhance the scope of actions on fundamental rights on European and national level.
