The trio formed by the Italian, Latvian and Luxembourg presidencies of the Council of the European Union together with European Commission and in partnership with the LUISS University of Rome, the Riga Graduate School of Law and the University of Luxembourg organize a cycle of conferences on the role played by the European Court of Justice in building the EU’s Area of Freedom, Security and Justice in the post-Lisbon era.
The second conference in the cycle – “The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice: five years after the Lisbon Treaty” – will take place in Riga on 28 and 29 April, 2015.
The aim of this conference is to analyse the effect of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in the effective application of the Area of Freedom Security and Justice (AFSJ), as provided for in the EU treaties particularly after the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty. Sessions of the conference will assess how the Charter is mainstreamed at all stages of the legislative procedure from the impact assessment through the inter-institutional phase, the national perspective, including challenges and best practices in the application of the Charter when implementing EU law in the AFSJ as well as future developments, prospects and challenges.
