EU Justice Scoreboard 2020: Continued improvements in efficiency and accessibility of EU justice systems, coupled with decline in the perception of judicial independence in some Member States
Today, the European Commission published the 2020 EU Justice Scoreboard – a comparative overview of the efficiency, quality and independence of justice systems in all EU Member States. This year’s Scoreboard shows a continued improvement in the efficiency of justice systems in a large number of Member States. At the same time, according to the results of a Eurobarometer published today, the perception of judicial independence amongst citizens in a number of Member States has continued to decrease.
Vice-President for Values and Transparency, Věra Jourová said: “The EU Justice Scoreboard is an established tool to analyse the trends in the justice systems in our Union. I am encouraged to see that justice systems in many Member States are working better and Europeans can effectively seek justice. What worries me is that in some countries the perception of independence is very low and political pressure features as one of the main reasons behind.”
Commissioner for Justice and Consumers, Didier Reynders, said, “The Justice Scoreboard provides valuable insight into the rule of law in all EU Member States, and the results will feed into the Commission’s first annual Rule of Law Report this year. From the 2020 edition, we can see that there have been improvements in the effectiveness of justice systems in a large majority of Member States, which is good news. However we can also see that citizens do not fully trust their legal systems, which is a problem we need to address.
