Making rights real
A guide for local and regional authorities
All levels and sectors of government including regional and local actors are bound to comply with fundamental rights obligations as defined in national, European and international law. All EU Member States are parties to the European Convention on Human Rights, various thematic Council of Europe conventions and United Nations (UN) Human Rights treaties. Within the EU, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union is also binding for its Member States when implementing EU law. States assume the duty to respect, to protect and to fulfil human rights and to translate them into national... law.
