About the Authors
  • In spite of a continued increase in the substantive scope and reach of EU fundamental rights, little attention has been paid to their practical enforcement. In this book, Mark Dawson looks at the mechanisms through which EU fundamental rights are protected and enforced, closely examining the interrelation between the EU's pertinent legal and political bodies. He argues that in order to understand EU fundamental rights we must also understand the institutional, political and normative constraints that shape the EU's policies. The book examines the performance of different EU institutions in relation to rights and studies two important policy fields - social rights and rule of law protection - in depth.

    • Takes a holistic view of EU fundamental rights, exploring their development across political and legal institutions
    • Examines new challenges in the fundamental rights field, such as the impact of the EU Charter, and the development of new mechanisms for human rights protection in specific fields, such as data and rule of law protection
    • Develops a governance approach to fundamental rights and considers how the study of human rights can benefit from insights developed in EU governance research, combining empirical and doctrinal approaches
