The session explores why the EU is presently struggling to address the problem of autocratisation in various member states and its neighbourhood. Does the EU first need to rebuild its own rule of law and civic space to be a credible advocate for democracy in its neighbourhood? How could a legal and political compass look like that minimises dangers of democratic backslides at home and abroad?
