Programme Fundamental Rights and Citizenship 2013

Starting from February 2015, the Research Group on European Law is involved as partner in the DG Justice supported project:

Don’t knock on the wrong door: CharterClick! A user-friendly tool to detect violations falling within the scope of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.

Its chief purpose is to create a set of tools that will assist victims of fundamental rights violations, lawyers, national judges, ombudspersons, equality bodies and other national human rights institutions in determining whether the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights can provide protection in a specific case.

Updated information on the development of the project will be regularly provided at the project web-page Those interested can contact the Uppsala University representative (, the Project Coordinator ( and the Project Manager ( for further information.
