Fundamental Rights Report published today
The 5th annual report on the application of the Charter, covering the year 2014, was published today by the European Commission. This annual report shows how the EU and its Member States gave effect to the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. Five years after it became legally binding, we see a marked increase in references to the Charter, as a fundamental guardian of citizens’ rights. The Charter applies to the EU in all its actions: whether it’s adopting legislation, managing funds, or in its external actions.
