Hungarian CSOs contribute to the European Commission’s 2024 Rule of Law Report

For the fifth year in a row, the Hungarian Helsinki Committee is contributing to the European Commission’s annual Rule of Law Report in coordination with other Hungarian human rights and anti-corruption CSOs.

Once again, Amnesty International Hungary, the Eötvös Károly Institute, the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, K-Monitor, Mertek Media Monitor, Ökotárs – Hungarian Environmental Partnership Foundation, Political Capital, and Transparency International Hungary teamed up to provide an overarching assessment of the rule of law situation in Hungary.

The compilation of the contributions of the above CSOs to the 2024 Rule of Law Report covers in detail all four pillars of the Rule of Law Report, namely:

  • the justice system (its independence, the quality of justice, the efficiency of the justice system);
  • the anti-corruption framework (institutional capacity to fight corruption, prevention, repressive measures);
  • media pluralism and media freedom (media authorities, safeguards against interference, media ownership, protection of journalists, freedom of information);
  • other institutional issues related to the system of checks and balances (legislative process, independent authorities, execution of judgments, framework for CSOs).

As part of this exercise, we also assessed at the beginning of each chapter the measures taken by the Hungarian government to follow-up on the recommendations it received in last year’s Rule of Law Report.

The compilation of the contributions of the nine CSOs above on the rule of law in Hungary is available here:
