Commission seeks input on a new anti-coercion instrument: have your say!
On 23 March 2021, the European Commission launched a 12-week public consultation to seek input from stakeholders (including Universities and Research Organizations) and individuals in shaping a new legal instrument to deter and counteract coercive practices by non-EU countries. The definition of coercive practices is a central question for the initiative and the Commission is currently seeking input from stakeholders to further define them.
The input received will serve the Commission in developing its legislative proposal to be adopted by the end of this year.
