Commentary of the CIR: “Article 7 or catch 22”
The European Commission decided to launch “Article 7” against Poland on 20th December, which could end up potentially with blockade of our possibilities in making decisions about EU matters. The launch of the “Article 7” is not only real blow for Poland but also a sign of internal, institutional crisis of the entire Community which can meet with opposition from some countries of the European Union. Polish politicians officially declared their willingness to establish a dialog. None of the sides is interested in dragging and inflaming the current conflict – wrote Wicke van den Broek, an associate of the Center for International Relations in the commentary „Article 7 or catch 22”.
