The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights

Let’s unite to promote and protect our fundamental rights!
#RightHereRightNow

 

A fair society is one where rights are the same for each of us.

The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights is the EU law that sets out all the personal, civil, political, economic and social rights that everyone in the EU should enjoy.

The Charter puts each individual at the core of the universal and democratic values of human dignity, freedom, equality and solidarity that the EU is built on.

The European Union is at the forefront in the promotion and protection of these fundamental rights.

Learn more about specific fundamental rights, the Charter, and what to do if your rights are breached.

Rights of the child

Children must be able to live in a safe, caring and stimulating environment in order to achieve their fullest potential.

The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights protects and defends the rights and best interests of each child as an individual, and as a member of a family and community, thus enabling them to fully enjoy their human rights.

Your rights and opportunities should not be any different because of your gender.

The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights guarantees equality between women and men in every aspect of life, including education, work, the social environment and political participation. It is the basis for the comprehensive protection of rights for girls and boys, women and men.

You should have unhindered access to the tools needed in order to shape well-informed opinions, and be free to express such opinions without fear of  sanctions or reprisals.

The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights protects your right to the freedom of expression and information, and it also protects those of the media – so they may carry out their work in a free and independent manner.

You should always be granted effective access to justice and be treated fairly in court.
