Prof. Dimitry Kochenov (EU Constitutional Law) has published a volume on 'Reinforcing Rule of Law Oversight in the EU' co-edited with Carlos Closa (Madrid). It is a critical overview of key proposals on how to improve the Rule of Law climate in the Union where the defiance of the newly-autoritarian Member States is growing.

This book provides the definitive reference point on the issues pertaining to dealing with the 'crisis of the rule of law' in the European Union. Both Member State and EU levels are considered. Particular attention is paid to the analysis of the concrete legal bases and instruments that the EU may avail itself of for enforcing rule of law, and the volume clearly demonstrates that a number of legally sound ways of rule of law oversight are available.

Among the contributors to the Cambridge University Press collection, the second Dimitry edits for that Press, are the EUI President Emeritus Prof. Joseph Weiler, the Vice President of the Venice Commission for Democracy through Law Prof Kaarlo Tuori, Prof Jan-Werner Muller of the Princeton University's Department of Politics, Prof Martin Scheinin of the EUI and Prof Kim Lane Scheppele of the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton.
