Rule of law in the EU, mounting coronavirus concerns and Brexit brinksmanship are all up for debate on the latest episode of EU Confidential. Justice Commissioner Didier Reynders is our special guest to discuss the Commission's new rule-of-law audit of all 27 member countries.

POLITICO's Rym Momtaz, Matthew Karnitschnig and Barbara Moens break down the state-of-play in Brexit negotiations ahead of next week's discussion among EU leaders at another European Council summit. And with cases of coronavirus on the rise, we take stock of what the situation looks like around the Continent.

Our special guest this week is Justice Commissioner Didier Reynders. He spoke to POLITICO's Lili Bayer about the Commission's new rule-of-law audit of all 27 member countries, addressing criticism that it goes too far for some, and not far enough for others.
