Let me first say that I find the New European Justice Stakeholders Forum an excellent idea. I see from the concept note that it is a forum where all relevant stakeholders and policymakers from the European Commission, the European Parliament, Member States, the European Economic and Social Committee, and the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe can meet to get to know one another, discuss key issues and new challenges, share best practices, support and inform policymakers and engage in policymaking. This should be a very important contribution to our efforts to establish the rule of law.
