“Human Rights and Their Impact on Various Fields of the Law”
The entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty marks a cornerstone in the development of the human rights system in Europe. By furnishing the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union with binding force and envisaging the accession of the European Union to the European Convention on Human Rights, the Treaty envisages a multi-layered and complex European system of human rights.
Beyond such historical events, however, a less visible but equally relevant development deserves academic attention, which concerns the way, how human rights impact other fields of the law. Such impact is obvious in a number of areas of the law such as police law, criminal procedure, family law or labour law. However, a closer look reveals, that there is hardly any field of the law, which is beyond the reach of human rights, including such matters as tax or economic law and environmental law. Even more, the Lisbon Treaty highlights, that human rights belong to the core values of the European Union and for instance also inform its foreign relations.
The summer school aims at providing a comprehensive overview as well as in depth discussions on these issues.
