‘Horizontal direct effect of European fundamental rights - excessive protection?’, lecture by Mr Classen, IRDEIC, CEEC


The objective of the Europe Capitole Centre of Excellence’s programme is to study the place and role of fundamental freedoms in European integration.

Fundamental rights are legal and political instruments that can affect the direction and content of European integration; their nature and the numerous ways they intersect with the law and political science deserve to be examined from legal and political perspectives.

In the spirit of Jean Monnet who advocated for the union of peoples, this study has been made accessible to Europeans through the Lectures on Freedoms series.                

Is the horizontal direct effect of European fundamental rights an excess of protection?
The majority of European fundamental rights are generally recognised to contain guarantees that presuppose the individual’s protection against State violations as well as infringements by private parties. Given the legislature’s wide margin of discretion, the direct effect of European fundamental rights could call into question the principles on which the direct effect of Union law is based. This lecture will discuss such a hypothesis.
