Law staff publish articles in influential book about Fundamental Rights in Europe

Dr Lorna Gilles and Dr Stelios Andreadakis published two articles in a highly regarded collection on the protection of fundamental rights in Europe which discusses the role of the European Courts and the evolution of this contemporary and controversial area of law.

Dr Stelios Andreadakis and Dr Lorna Gillies are amongst the contributors in the edited collection ‘Fundamental Rights in the EU: A Matter for Two Courts’.

The collection brings together a number of high-profile contributors and joins the expanding scholarship in the area of fundamental rights and their protection in Europe. The focus is on the relationship between the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights, covering issues of judicial cooperation and dialogue in the post-Lisbon era and in the context of the process of the Accession of the EU to the European Convention on Human Rights.

Dr Andreadakis’ chapter provides an overview of the problems and challenges of the EU Accession and offers valuable insights based on empirical data gathered by a set of interviews with European Judges and policy-makers. Dr Gillies’ chapter focuses on how the emergence of the Charter as a source of fundamental rights law is reflected in a number of recent decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union in the field of judicial cooperation in civil matters.

The book, edited by Sonia Morano-Foadi and Professor Lucy Vickers (both Oxford Brookes University), is already considered essential reading for academics researching and specialising in this area of law as well as for policy-makers, judges and practitioners, as it contains high quality research outputs that contribute to a rigorous academic discussion.
