Smyth, Ciara. (2015). Review of Steve Peers, Tamara Hervey, Jeff Kenner and Angela Ward (eds), The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights: A Commentary (Hart Publishing 2014). Irish Journal of European Law, 18(2), 78-80.
This is not just the latest commentary on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights (the Charter)1 but the definitive commentary, at least until it is overtaken by developments in the European courts and requires an update. Authored by the leading commentators on the various rights including several members of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and edited by Peers, Hervey, Kenner and Ward – all authorities on the Charter – this collection brings together the key concepts, debates, intricacies and unresolved questions concerning the Charter of Fundamental Rights. The net result is a handbook for practitioners wishing to use the Charter in legal argumentation and a conceptual springboard for scholars teaching and researching on matters of EU law.
