(p.125) 7 The Role of the ECJ in the Protection of Fundamental Rights
Continuity and Change in EU Law

Antonio Tizzano

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the role of the European Court of Justice in protecting fundamental rights. It shows that the Court's approach in this area developed progressively over several decades and different phases, through a number of judgments which were as bold as they were far-sighted. It has undertaken a dynamic interpretation of Community law, developing to their full extent principles inherent in the legal order originally created by the Treaties. The Court has carried out its mission and fulfilled its role in a consistent manner.

Keywords:   European Court of Justice, Advocate General, Sir Francis Jacobs, Community law
