The sometimes complex and controversial relationship between the fundamental rights of the European Union, as enshrined in the EU CFR, and national fundamental rights in its context of the constitutional court review is the result of a series of landmark decisions in the multilateral cooperation of European courts (Gerichtsverbund), which have led to the formation of a new fundamental rights architecture in the multi-level system. This conference aims to present these developments systematically and in a comparative legal manner. Register with psaila {at} jur.uni-frankfurt(.)de.
