The workshop addressed the following topics:

The war in Ukraine does not alleviate the internal rule of law crisis but, instead, exposes the limits of the EU's power and authority, as well as the effectiveness of the "integration through law" technocratic mode of governance.

The war is likely to heighten the tension between technocratic adherence to the "rule of rules" and the need for swift action through the "politics of emergency."

Interestingly, the war's impact seems to have bolstered the position of Central and Eastern European countries, leading to a shift in the dynamics between the EU's center and periphery.
