Progress and Limits of the Rule of Law

This essay analyzes the process of the establishment of the rule of law
in Poland, highlighting the limits and risks that restrain its achievements.
In 1989, in Poland as in other Central and Eastern European
countries, the fall of communism led to the inclusion of the rule of law
in the constitutional order. While this principle was implemented
immediately after its inclusion in the Constitution, the formation of
its doctrinal and judicial basis is still in its initial stage. The rule of law
is constantly threatened by the specific conditions of the transformation
process: the settling of scores about the past, the weakness of the
party system, the difficult economic transformations, the fragility of
civil society, legislative weakness and populism. The more recent period,
during which the risks have increased according to certain observers,
represents a clear test for the strength of the state in Poland.
