Justice, Fundamental Rights & Article 17 TFEU

Respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and human rights are the values on which the European Union is founded. The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU is the fundamental text of reference for Union policies and initiatives.

COMECE closely follows policies related to justice and fundamental rights in areas such as freedom of religion inside the EU, Church-State relations, equality and non-discrimination, data protection, family matters, rights of the child, child protection, hate speech/hate crimes. COMECE is of the view that fundamental rights must have a clear and objective concept of human dignity as their basis, and that consideration must be given to their impact on the activities of the Church.

COMECE is assisted in this mission by a Legal Affairs Commission.
