Justice and the Rule of Law


In order to ensure the protection or reinforcement of human rights respect and the rule of law, the questions of access to an independent judiciary and needed legislative reforms to safeguard human rights are crucial.

EuroMed Rights carefully monitors ongoing legal reform and conducts trial observation missions while keeping a watchful eye on abusive pre-trial detention.
