Judith Sargentini is a Member of the European Parliament since 2009. She represents the Dutch Green Party and she is the vice-chair of the civil liberties committee on behalf of the Green/EFA group. Based on a report by Judith Sargentini, the European Parliament adopted a resolution in September 2018 which recommended triggering  Article 7 TEU against Hungary, and which urged the Council to find the existence of a clear risk for the European Union’s fundamental values.

Stefaan Van den Bogaert, Professor of European Law and Director of the Europa Institute: ‘We are looking forward to Judith Sargentini sharing her extensive experience with, and knowledge of, protection of the rule of law at a time when this topic is more important than ever for the European Union.’
