The ‘Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union‘ puts the rights and freedoms of people living in the European Union into writing in an easy understandable form.

Drafted by a Convention of 60 people from all EU countries in 2000 and ratified in 2009 under the Treaty of Lisbon, the Charter is today the basis for economic, cultural and social coexistence in the EU.

At the time of its proclamation, the Charter was celebrated as progressive, as it elevated previously disregarded jurisdictions to the status of fundamental rights.

It consists of a preamble and 54 articles under the titles:
Dignity - Freedoms - Equality - Solidarity - Citizens rights - Justice - General provisions on interpretation.
