Press conference by Viviane Reding, on the annual reports 2013 on the application of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and on gender equality

184 views

Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, held a press conference on the fourth annual report on the application of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and on the annual gender equality report, both published by the European Commission on 14 April 2014. The report on the application of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights shows that the importance and prominence of the EU Charter continues to rise: the Court of Justice of the EU increasingly applies the Charter in its decisions while national judges are more and more aware of the Charter's impact and seek guidance from the Court of Justice of the EU. The EC has also progressively sought to bring the Charter to life by taking action to promote and defend the rights of EU citizens laid down in the Charter. Since 2010, the EC has put in place a 'fundamental rights checklist' and as a result screens every legislative proposal to ensure it is 'fundamental-rights proof'. The annual report on the application of the Charter tracks the progress made and identifies challenges and concerns. The annual gender equality report reveals that gender gaps have significantly shrunk in recent years but that progress is uneven among the Member States and discrepancies continue to exist in different areas – to the detriment of Europe's economy. It is structured around the five priorities of the European Commission’s Strategy for equality between women and men 2010-2015: equal economic independence; equal pay for equal work and work of equal value; equality in decision-making; dignity, integrity and ending gender-based violence, gender equality in external action policy, and horizontal issues.
