The Charter makes these rights visible and better known to all citizens. In addition, it contains rights that are not protected under the ECHR, such as social rights of employees, data protection and the right to good administration. The Charter applies to Union institutions and bodies and to the Member States when implementing Union law. To mark the tenth anniversary, a study afternoon is being organized on the Charter on Wednesday 4 December (in Dutch). In addition to a general introduction to and reflection on the Charter, particular attention will be paid to the procedural guarantees, the right to liberty and security, the right to private life and protection of personal data and the Charter’s impact on migration.
