This event launches the Second Edition of 'The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights: A Commentary' (Hart Publishing). The book is the first commentary on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in English and is written by experts from several EU Member States. It provides an authoritative but succinct statement of how the Charter impacts upon EU, domestic and international law. Following the conventional article-by-article approach, each commentator offers an expert view of how each article is either already being interpreted in the courts, or is likely to be interpreted. Each commentary is referenced to the case law and is augmented with extensive references to further reading. This is a much-welcomed new edition of the authoritative guide to the Charter. Steve Peers is Professor of EU Law at the University of Essex. Tamara Hervey is Jean Monnet Professor of EU Law ad personam, City, University of London. Jeff Kenner is Professor of EU Law at the University of Nottingham. Angela Ward is a Référendaire in the Chambers of Advocate General Niilo Jääskinen at the Court of Justice of the European Union, and is a Visiting Professor in the Law Faculty of Birkbeck College University of London.
There will be a welcome from Professor Tamara Hervey, followed by brief remarks from Professor Steve Peers, Professor Jeff Kenner and Sinead Moloney from Hart Publishing.
