Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly reviews the human rights capacity of the European Union (EU), and sheds light on the evolving need for a human rights institution to monitor human rights within the Union, and therefore explains the creation of the EU Network of Independent Experts. Europes citizens already benefit from the Council of Europe, a longstanding proponent of human rights. The EU Network of Independent Experts represents a natural progression in the evolution of recognition of fundamental rights within the European Union. The Network discharges its mission in three ways: reporting annually on the situation of fundamental rights within each Member State, issuing comments on topical themes, and preparing opinions on fundamental rights in the Union when so requested by the Commission. The Network has pioneered human rights in the Union, heightening awareness of compliance: duties and responsibilities.
