L4R OPEN SOURCE PUBLICATIONS NOW AVAILABLE

The European project Lawyers4Rights (https://lawyers4rights.eu/) funded by the Justice Program of the European Union 2014-2020 (JUST-JTRA-EJTR-AG-2017 – Grant agreement number 806974) aims to analyze the application of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union in matters of family reunification and fight against terrorism in Spain, Italy and Bulgaria.

The key research question from which the study moves is about the role of the Charter in the protection of fundamental rights in national legal systems and its role in the hierarchy of supranational sources of law. Is the Charter a key legal instrument in the judicial protection of fundamental rights? How can lawyers invoke its direct application before the national court?

The publication provides an overview of the European and national jurisprudence applicable to the matters of family reunification and the fight against terrorism in order to provide lawyers with new tools of knowledge for the protection of the fundamental rights. In addition, the national analysis reports make it possible to assess the actual level of transposition of European legislation into national legal systems as well as the alignment of internal jurisprudence with the higher level of the European Courts.

The publications, characterized by a practical approach, are addressed to all those who work in the sector of family reunification and in that of the guarantee of rights in order to provide an application framework of the applicable regulatory and jurisprudential instruments.

 

The European and national analysis reports of these two sectors are, today, the subject of a double publication edited by Giappichelli and available in digital open access version on the following links:

A study on the application of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union in civil jurisdiction – The right of family reunification

A study on the application of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union in criminal jurisdiction – The fight against terrorism
