Die Grundrechte-Charta umfasst die wichtigsten politischen, sozialen und wirtschaftlichen Rechte aller EU-Bürger. Die 2. Auflage des Kommentars von Peers/Hervey/Kenner/Ward bietet Auslegungssicherheit für jeden Artikel der Charta. Die jüngste Rechtsprechung ist umfassend integriert.
The Charter enshrines the key political, social and economic rights of EU citizens and residents in EU law. It obliges the EU to act and legislate consistently with the Charter, and enables the EU's courts to strike down EU legislation which contravenes it. It applies to EU Member States when they are implementing EU law but does not extend the competences of the EU beyond the competences given to it in the treaties.
The new edition
of the first commentary of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in English, written by experts from several EU Member States, provides an authoritative but succinct statement of how the Charter impacts upon EU, domestic and international law.
Following the conventional article-by-article approach, each commentator offers an expert view of how each article is either already being interpreted in the courts, or is likely to be interpreted. Each commentary is referenced to the case law and is augmented with extensive references to further reading. Cross-cutting chapters explore questions such as accession, implementation, the Charter and the General Court, and fundamental social rights.
“… this most thorough commentary must be regarded as the Bible on the Charter”
Peter Oliver, Common Market Law Review
