Values, Rights and Principles in EU Law

Monday, December 6, 2021, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

The legal categories of values, principles and rights find specific positions in the EU legal order and have evolved along the many revisions of the founding Treaties. 

This lecture will examine the significance of each category in EU law and their mutual relationships, also in the light of established case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

The speaker will follow an academic approach and any reference to pending cases will be strictly avoided.

The webinar will be streamed live on the Institute’s Facebook page.
