Human Rights and the EU: Five years after the Lisbon Treaty what next?
EIUC organises 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 is to be considered 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 will be 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 represents 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 will as a matter of fact enable its attendants to focus on both the internal and the external dimension of the policies of the EU and their implications for human rights.
The conference will start in the morning at 9.30 a.m. and focus on the internal policies of the EU and the Member States; after a working lunch we will resume and discuss the implications for the external policies of the Union. Here follows the programme with a list of confirmed guests.
