Direitos humanos, mercados e desafios da governação

Within this Thematic Line, we envisage to investigate to what extent, and in what ways EU law and case-law of the European Court of Justice, as well as the doctrine and practice of the novel European Agency for Fundamental Rights, are furthering the role of human rights as standards of reference for framing or judging market entities’ practices.

4 main research topics are: i) The Charter of Fundamental Rights, a reference guide for the European Internal Market?; ii) The justiciability of economic, social and cultural rights in the light, in particular, of public policies designed to address the deficit/debt problem; iii) Judges and the growth of inequalities: new trends in judicial interpretation and enforcement of the law and its implications for the theory of law in civil law systems; and iv) The EU “Better Regulation Agenda” and its impact on policy practice and on the opening up of regulation.
