EU Justice Scoreboard: European Commission broadens the scope of its analysis of Member States' justice systems

Date: 27/03/2013

The European Commission has today unveiled a new comparative tool to promote effective justice in the European Union and thereby reinforce economic growth. The EU Justice Scoreboard is a comparative tool, which seeks to provide reliable and objective data on the justice systems in all 27 Member States, and in particular on the quality, independence and efficiency of justice, which are the key components of an 'effective justice system'. Effective justice systems are crucial for growth and for the effective implementation of EU law, as national courts play an essential role in upholding EU law. Improving the quality, independence and efficiency of judicial systems already forms part of the EU’s economic policy coordination process under the European Semester.
