This article examines the implications of the EU Charter for Dutch private law. It argues that the effect of the EU Charter on Dutch private law is limited, but that its impact will increase when major issues concerning its application are resolved. In this context the article discusses the horizontal effects of fundamental rights and the distinctions the Charter draws between principles and rights.
