pencilWhat is the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union?

The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union was proclaimed in Nice on the 7th of December 2000: it is the diary in which are noted the principles that have guided Europe from the moment of its birth until today; it is the will with which the founding fathers hand down to us their most precious heritage; it is the strong-box containing all the secrets which are capable of inspiring the construction of a steady and peaceful future. The Charter is divided in 6 chapters, each articulating a founding principle of the European Union: Dignity, Freedom, Equality, Solidarity, Citizenship and Justice.
