It is structured around the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, making navigation through the information easy and user-friendly.
What can I find in Charterpedia? Charterpedia is a compilation of international, European Union and national constitutional law in the area of fundamental rights, linked to the topics, chapters and articles of the Charter. This compilation was created by the Civil Liberties Committee of the European Parliament (LIBE) and taken over by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) in 2008.
