Fundamental Rights in the EU

A Matter for Two Courts

Edited by: Sonia Morano-Foadi, Lucy Vickers

This collection joins the new and expanding scholarship on the protection of fundamental rights in Europe, and it reflects on the relationship between the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). The book questions whether the changes introduced by the Lisbon Treaty align the CJEU to the ECtHR's interpretation and methods, triggering different processes of institutionalization within a coherent European system. These issues are explored through a contextual analysis of areas of law, such as equality rights in employment law, citizenship and migration, internet law, and access to justice. The book includes perspectives from the scholarly community, as well as practitioners, judges, and European policy makers. It also examines the state of accession of the EU to the European Convention on Human Rights and considers the legal implications of the accession for the protection of the fundamental rights of EU citizens and individuals legally residing in Europe.
