Charterpedia is an online tool which provides easy-to-access information on the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. The Charter is the European Union’s ‘bill of rights’. It enshrines in 54 Articles a wide array of fundamental rights enjoyed by EU citizens and residents. It applies to the EU and to the Member States when they act within the scope of EU law.

Charterpedia is an information-hub providing relevant article-by-article information. It lists case law by national courts, the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights referring to the Charter (“related case law”). Moreover, related legal sources (“explanations”) and FRA publications are displayed for each Charter article. Full-text search or searches by country or deciding body of the case law is possible in the Case-law Database. For more information, see the Background page.
