The EU Treaties and the Charter of Fundamental Rights

Tobias Lock

Oxford University Press

Article 22 CFR aims to ensure the diversity of the Union and complements other provisions of the Charter and the Treaties pursuing similar objectives. Cultural and linguistic diversity are among the core values of the EU mentioned in Article 3(3) TEU. Cultural diversity finds further expression in primary law in Article 167(1) and (4) TFEU; and linguistic diversity in the right to address the EU institutions in any one of the EU’s official languages in Article 41(4) CFR as well as in Article 21 CFR, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of language. Moreover, the Union’s commitment to religious diversity is reflected in Article 17 TFEU protecting the status of churches, religious, philosophical, and non-confessional organizations and communities as well as in Article 10 CFR protecting freedom of religion and belief.
