EXPLANATIONS RELATING TO THE CHARTER
OF FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS OF THE EUROPEAN UNION

The Bureau of the Convention - at its own instigation and prior to the actual adoption of the Charter - prepared explanations for each article of the Charter.

They are intended simply to clarify the provisions of the Charter, indicating the sources and scope of each of the rights set out therein. They have no legal value and are published here for information only.

N.B. The wording of the articles given in this set of explanations may, depending on the language version, differ slightly from the official authentic text of the Charter.

Full text of the explanations, document CONVENT 49 of 11.10.2000 (or 19.11.2000 for the French version, REV I) (PDF, 120 K).
