Description
The main objective of the course is to develop advanced understanding of methodology and practice of protection of fundamental rights in the European union. Within this general objective students will learn about the theoretical foundation of fundamenal rights, their normative ordering and how are they incorporated into the law of the EU. The course will present evolution of judicial protection of fundamental rights before the European Court of Justice, how are they crystallized in its case law and codified by the Founding Treaties and secondary legislation. The course will explore tension between fundamental rights and market freedoms and how it is resolved by the judiciary, particularly through development and application of judicial doctrines of proportionality and margin of appreciation. While the course is focused on the law of the EU, it will also address issue of relationship between the European Court of Justice, the European Court of Human Rights and national courts of EU Member States.
