This special issue on rule of law decay addresses a range of issues prompted by
recent developments in Poland, Hungary and elsewhere: How to conceptualize
rule of law decay? What are its characteristics? How can it be explained? Can it
be detected at an early stage? What is the methodology of undermining the rule of
law? What, if anything, can outsiders, especially the EU, do to counter this decay?
What lessons can be drawn for demands imposed on candidates by the EU in future
enlargement rounds?
