"What could be happening in Poland is a dangerous situation, where there are two legal systems, both of which claim the other to be illegitimate," says Agata Gostyńska-Jakubowska, a senior researcher at the Centre for European Reform, based in Brussels....Gostyńska-Jakubowska says in addition to the punitive measures currently being taken, the EU needs to better explain to European citizens why the deterioration of the rule of law is so dangerous. "We need not only sticks, but carrots. We need to explain to citizens in those countries why the rule of law matters."
