Awareness of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union
This report presents the results of a Special Eurobarometer survey which was carried out between 15th and 29th March 2019. Interviews took place in the 28 Member States of the European Union. The Charter of Fundamental Rights combines in one document all the social, civic, personal, economic and political rights enjoyed by EU citizens. It encompasses the rights and freedoms set out in the European Convention on Human Rights, the rights found in the case law of the EU Court of Justice, as well as other rights and principles emerging from the common constitutional traditions of EU countries and other international instruments. It also includes ‘third generation’ rights such as data protection and guarantees on bioethics. It has been legally binding in the EU since 20091. The Charter applies to the work of all institutions and bodies of the EU, as well as EU Member States and their national bodies when they are implementing EU law
