Panelists include Kim Lane Scheppele (Princeton University); Adam Bodnar (former Polish ombudsman); Márta Pardavi (co-chair, Hungarian Helsinki Committee); Wojciech Sadurski (scholar of Constitutional Law); Sophie in t'Veld (Member of European Parliament); Laurent Pech (Middlesex University); Judge Tamara Trotman (President, Judges for Judges); Judge Tomasz PosĹ‚uszny (Board member, Iustitia Polish judges association); Akudo McGee (PhD researcher in norm contestation in Poland, Maastricht University); Jakub Jaraczewski (Research coordinator, Democracy Reporting International); Radosveta Vassileva (Bulgarian legal scholar in comparative public and private law); Jan Wouters (KU Leuven); Léonie de Jonge (University of Groningen); amongst others!


In September last year the same students organized the Our Rule of Law Festival on the rule of law in Poland. During the two-day festival, nine Polish protagonists, including the Polish judge Igor Tuleya, who has been stripped of immunity, came to Groningen to share their stories.
