New ‘Judiciary Hub’ is now online

Logo of the Judiciary Hub

The European Union is a rich tapestry of cultures and traditions — also regarding its justice systems. While research, analysis and indicators on member states' judiciary systems abound, the information is scattered across legal documents, scholarly journals, a myriad of rankings and surveys, and many more sources.

This is why Democracy Reporting International, under the re:constitution project and with support by Stiftung Mercator, created the Judiciary Hub, a go-to resource for experts and professionals trying to decode Europe's judicial maze. In the face of mounting challenges to the rule of law and increased dis/misinformation around the topic, the Hub offers facts, analysis, and reliable sources to facilitate informed discussions.

To the Judiciary Hub

The Judiciary Hub provides:

  • A user-friendly map for accessing data and rankings.
  • In-depth profiles of member states' justice systems.
  • Comparisons between states.
  • The latest updates to keep users well-informed.


The tool was launched with a special online event with researchers and practitioners delving into a critical conversation about the complexities of communicating the rule of law. Speaking on this matter were:

  • Jakub Jaraczewski | Research Coordinator at Democracy Reporting International
  • Nino Tsereteli | Research Officer at Democracy Reporting International

As well as esteemed guest speakers:  

  • Barbara Grabowska-Moroz |  Research Fellow at CEU Democracy Institute
  • Marta Pardavi | Co-Chair of Hungarian Helsinki Committee
  • Daniel Tilles | Chief Editor of Notes From Poland


The event was recorded and can be watched here.
