This course concerns the protection of fundamental rights within Europe. Fundamental rights are of utmost importance for enabling us to live the life we want to live and for a well-functioning democracy. They have a great impact on our daily lives and on our national legal systems. Given the extension of the scope of fundamental rights, they are now visible almost everywhere, from criminal law to company law, and from private law to constitutional law. For that reason, it is important to know and understand the dynamics of interpretation and limitation of fundamental rights in Europe, and to learn how the European courts deal with issues such as diversity, subsidiarity and citizenship. Fundamental rights protection in Europe co-exist in national, European Union (EU) and Council of Europe (CoE) mechanisms. This co-existence in different legal systems raises important questions as regards the coherence and consistency in the interpretation of rights and the effect of EU and CoE rights in national legal orders.
