European Observer on Fundamental Right's Respect
The Lelio and Lisli Basso–Issoco Fondazione (Fondazione Basso), located in Rome, together with the International Research Centre on European Law based at the University of Bologna (C.I.R.D.E.) and the Association of European Judges and Public Prosecutors for Democracy and Fundamental Rights located in Strasbourg (medel) have set up an Observatory on the respect of fundamental rights in Europe. The Observatory intends to monitor and assess fundamental rights judgments by courts in Europe.
Rationale and aims:
The idea arose following some studies on national and European case-law following the drafting of the Charter of fundamental rights of the European Union (the Nice Charter) and a Conference on this subject, during which it emerged that there is no forum for justice practitioners and scholars in Europe to discuss developments in EU case-law, its effects on domestic case-law and on the final level of protection of fundamental rights in the complex “multi-level” system that has grown in recent decades in Europe. The protection of fundamental rights affects three levels of legal order in European countries - national law, community law and international law - which intersect and integrate in various ways.
The Observatory is intended to help meet various requirements:
