Social Rights in Europe

Edited by Gráinne de Búrca and Bruno de Witte
with the assistance of Larissa Ogertschnig

  • Considers so-called 'neglected rights' such as those relating to health and disability
  • covers both the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and European Social Charter, two systems rarely considered side by side in the academic literature
  • Situates the debate on social rights in the context of important current events in the EU, including the EU constitution, the recent Open Method of Coordination, economic globalization, and Europe's increasing international role
  • Contrasts protection of social rights between traditionally democratic and post-communist states
