State of the Union Spitzenkandidaten Debate

Special envoy of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia (Ambassador-at-large) and BSF Programme director, Ambassador Iztok Mirošič, took part in the State of the Union Spitzenkandidaten Debate, which took place on 2 May in EUI’s Villa Salviati, home of the Historical Archives of the European Union, in Florence, Italy.

In the debate, Ambassador Mirošič pointed out the need to establish a rule of law control mechanism for all EU members – as this after all represents the foundation of our democratic systems – and more emphasis on the rule of law when it comes to negotiations with candidate countries and those aspiring to seek membership in the future.
