Butler, Israel de Jesus and De Schutter, Olivier (2008) Binding the EU to International Human Rights Law. Yearbook of European Law, 27. pp. 277-320. ISSN 0263-3264
This is the latest version of this item.
This article outlines the relationship between EU human rights law and international human rights law, arguing that the EU's current approach to human rights protection is out of line with current international obligations undertaken by its Member States. It explores the repercussions of this for human rights protection and for the continued supremacy and uniformity of Community law. It proposes that the EU should subject itself directly or indirectly to the same supervision mechanisms applying to its Member States and ensure that Member States human rights commitments are reflected in any exercise of Community competence.
