The project, which started in February 2015 and is coordinated by Prof. Adelina Adinolfi from the University of Florence, will address the sense of frustration that victims of fundamental rights violations experience when they rely on cases outside its scope of application.

To project will set up a freely accessible on-line platform where victims of fundamental rights violations, their representatives and national judges will find a set of tools to easily establish whether a claim falls within the scope of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. In particular,:

  • an Admissibility Checklist, modelled on a checklist related to the ECHR, aimed at detecting cases falling inside or outside the scope of the Charter;
  • Database containing a selection of cases drawn from the case law of the Union and national courts, and from the practice of national human rights bodies (in particular, equality bodies and ombudspersons), which will complement the Admissibility Checklist by exemplifying situations where the Charter can or cannot apply;
  • a document containing Practical Guidelines on the application of the Charter;
  • a Document on the Best Practices of those representing victims of fundamental rights as regards the identification of claims falling within the scope of the Charter.

The project will be run by the University of Florence in collaboration with 7 co-beneficiaries (from five different Member States), six academic institutions and an institute specialised in legal informatics (ITTIG). The Consortium is enriched by further associate partners from Member States, including ombudspersons, national Equality bodies, organizations providing legal assistance and training in the field, and a center for the exchange of knowledge and information between ombudspersons.

An initial meeting took place at the University of Florence in February 2015. Further information and outcomes of the project will be found on the project’s web-page http://www.charterclick.eu/

Project implemented with financial support of the Fundamental Rights & Citizenship Programme of the European Union (JUST/2013/FRC/AG)
