Protection of Fundamental Rights under Internal Market Rules and in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice: Unity or Dualism ?

Sophie ROBIN-OLIVIER, Protection of Fundamental Rights under Internal Market Rules and in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice: Unity or Dualism ?, CEJEC-wp, 2009/10

The aim of this paper is to describe, and possibly explain, the separation of the two areas (the internal market and the area of Freedom, Security and Justice) concerning fundamental rights protection. It is also to show that the system of protection of fundamental rights of the EU, in spite of its current evolution toward unity, will remain a system, where various logics coexists, and have to be coordinated, rather than simply erased.
