Human Rights and the EU: Five years after the Lisbon Treaty what next?
EIUC organised an event in Brussels on 10 July 2014 on "Human Rights and the EU: Five Years after the Ratification of the Lisbon Treaty".
The conference was a preparatory meeting to a major event to be held at the European Parliament, which EIUC is planning for the upcoming future; the attendants of this preparatory event were both academics, members of the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Council, as well as specialists in the field of Human Rights.
The event represented a unique occasion to discuss and evaluate the record of the Union and the main issues at stake, five years into the formal integration of the Charter of Fundamental Rights in the Treaties. It also constituted the opportunity to focus on both the internal and the external dimension of the policies of the EU and their implications for human rights.
The report of the conference will be soon posted on this website. For more information, please read here.
