Seminar: The New European Union Architecture in the Field of Human Rights. 6 May 2010, Brussels
On 6 May 2010 in Brussels, EIUC in cooperation with the European Commission organised a seminar on The New European Union Architecture in the Field of Human Rights.
The seminar aimed at reflecting on the consequences of the Lisbon Treaty on the EU human rights/fundamental rights policy. The entry into force of the Fundamental Rights Charter, the envisaged EU accession to the European Convention on Human rights, as well as the overarching mandate of the HR/VP and the forthcoming creation of the EEAS, all constitute important new developments with a considerable impact upon the EU's human right policy.
