The Horizontal Effect of Fundamental Rights in the European Union: A Constitutional Analysis
- Series: Institute for the Study of European Law (ISEL)
- Date: Wednesday 20th November 2019
- Time: 5.00pm - 7.00pm
- Venue: AG07b
- Guest Speaker: Dr Eleni Frantziou, Durham University
This presentation will discuss the speaker's recent monograph on the horizontal effect of fundamental rights in the European Union (OUP 2019). The book argues that the horizontal effect of fundamental rights (i.e. their application to disputes between private parties) cannot be usefully analysed based on the existing EU horizontality doctrine but, rather, requires a deeper engagement with the roots of horizontality in constitutional and human rights theory.
