The Protection of Fundamental Rights in the EU after Lisbon book cover

Share this article

The Lisbon Treaty came into effect in December of 2009 and promised to change how the EU protects fundamental rights. While change will come slowly, it will be felt in at least three ways: respect for human rights has become a foundational value of the EU; the EU must accede to the European Convention on Human Rights, adding an outside element to the discussions; and the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights is now binding on the EU, and will change the level of commitment of the EU to protecting and promoting fundamental rights. This book presents some of the post-Lisbon challenges posed to the EU as an entity. Law Library KJE 5132 .A8 P765 2013
