Title: The Charter and The Court of Justice of the European Union
Subtitle: Notable Cases from 2019 - 2022

Editors: Aniel Pahladsingh and Ramona Grimbergen

Content: The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (‘Charter’) lists 50 fundamental rights that apply to dignity, freedom, equality, solidarity, citizenship and justice in the European Union (‘EU’). Since the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty on 1 December 2009, the Charter has been legally binding on the institutions of the EU and on Member States, only when they are implementing Union Law.


The Charter exists already 13 years. Several questions about the Charter have been clarified, such as the status of the Charter and the significance of the Charter on national legal orders. There is a vast amount of case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union in which the Charter has proven its value, and national courts are increasingly applying the Charter in national proceedings too. Although many questions have already been addressed, the Charter is still in full development and plays an important role in a number of subjects such as the scope of the Charter and the rule of law and the relation with the European Convention on Human Rights. The Charter plays an important role in a number of areas of law such as criminal law and mutual trust, privacy law, asylum and migration law, equal treatment law, environmental law and economic law. Ultimately, it is up to the domestic courts to interpret the Charter; not only the Court of Justice of the European Union, but also the national judge increasingly is confronted with the Charter.


With the publication of this book, a further dimension is provided to the discussion and development concerning fundamental rights protection in the EU and national practice. With the contributions present in this bundle, developments are closely followed in the triangle Luxembourg-Brussels-Strasbourg. This collection aims to provide guidance to practice and academics. The publication contains annotated judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union from the period 2019-2022, commenting on landmark cases in which the Charter was central to the dictum of the Court of Justice of the European Union.
