A Review

(p.70) (p.71) 4 Respecting Fundamental Rights in the New Union
The Fundamentals of EU Law Revisited

Andrew Williams

Oxford University Press

This chapter reconsiders the nature of the purported founding principle and those attendant virtues that might provide the basis for an appreciation of human rights in the EU. The chapter is divided into two parts. The first examines the nature of the operative principle that applies to human rights. The second looks to establishing the basis for a scheme to review the EU's behaviour on human rights. Calling upon the notion of ‘virtue’ to encompass the qualities that might be expected of an institution endeavouring to respect human rights, a template is provided of virtues against which the EU can be judged. Three categories are noted: virtues of governance, executive virtues, and virtues of justice.
