About Economic and Social Rights under the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights

The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union includes,in addition to the traditional 'civil and political rights', a large number of rights of an economic or social nature. This collection of essays by leading scholars in this field considers the significance of the inclusion of such rights within the EU Charter, in terms of protection of individual and collective social and economic interests within and between the EU and its Member States. What differences might it make to EU law and policy (both in terms of its substance, and in terms of the processes by which it is formed), that certain economic and social rights are proclaimed in the EU Charter?

Reviews

“..interesting, well-researched and instructive...” –  Frank Wooldridge, International and Comparative Law Quarterly, Vol 55, Part 1

“This book sets itself apart from the general constitutional debate by focusing on the economic and social rights contained in the Charter. This is particularly relevant, since it is precisely those provisions that cause concern for any eventual British ratification of the draft treaty.
Kenners introductory chapter provides a useful overview of the development of rights documents at the UN, Council of Europe and EU levels, including the traditional hierarchy between civil political rights on the one hand and economic and social rights on the other.
” –  Sarah-Jane King, Yearbook of European Law

“This is a very interesting and topical book, containing essays of a consistently high standard . . . well worth reading for anyone interested in the subject.” –  Sandra Fredman, Public Law
