Summary/Abstract: Article 7 of the Treaty on European Union provides the strongest sanctions that the EU can impose on a Member State who disregards the Union’s founding values and legislation. Introduced by the Treaty of Amsterdam, the Article was invoked for the first time in December 2017 and has yet to be used to its full potential, despite the fact that, during the last two decades, there have been more and more situations that seemed to call for its application. An analysis of those situations and of the relevant EU law could provide answers regarding the motives behind the EU’s institutions’ hesitation to invoke Article 7 TEU.
