The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU at 10: Foundations, Achievements and Challenges
In 2009 the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU entered into force, making human rights a prominent part of EU law. But has the European human rights project developed robustly? Has it fulfilled its promises or have grey areas of protection crept in? What are European values and why do their understanding seem to divide rather than unite Europe?
20 years after the proclamation of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU and 10 years after its entry into force as law, a panel of speakers will discuss the continued relevance of the Charter and the challenges faced by the EU human rights project.

What future for the EU’s Charter of Rights after a decade?
The integration of the EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights into the EU treaties was controversial. Yet relatively few Europeans are aware that the Charter even exists, ten years after it became legally binding.
