On the Recognition of Fundamental Rights within the EU, the extent to which fundamental rights bind the Member States and the impact that the binding Charter of rights might have in this area.

 The human rights policies of the EU are overwhelmed by a paradox, as argued by Alston and Weiler. On one hand the Union is an active defender of human rights in both its internal and external affairs, and on the other hand, it lacks comprehensive and coherent policy at either level and serious doubts exist whether the institutions of the EU possess sufficient legal competence in relation to a wide range of human rights issues arising within the framework of Community policies.
