The EU’s Commitment to Fundamental Rights

28th February 2012

This evening event is aimed at exploring the EU's commitment to fundamental rights in its post-Lisbon decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union in decisions such as Cases C-236/09 Association belge des Consommateurs Test-Achats et al v Council, C-297/10, C-298/10 Hennigs v Eisenbahn-Bundesamt, Land Berlin v Mai, C-411/10 NS v SSHD and MSS v Belgium and Greece at the European Court of Human Rights. While examining the scope and content of the EU Charter, the event will also consider whether the Charter has increased fundamental rights protection at the EU level, or whether the Court will be restrained in its approach to fundamental rights issues.
