abstract

The presented paper deals with the question of whether the wording of Article 4(2) of the Treaty on European Union allows the EU Member States to grant a different level of fundamental rights protection in comparison with the level of protection granted by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU. The first part of the paper is dedicated to the caselaw of the Court of Justice of the EU concerning the Member State’s possibility to apply a higher level of fundamental rights protection in comparison with the Charter, as well as to considerations as to the potential possibilities to apply the higher level of fundamental rights protection as a result of respecting the Member State’s national identity. The second part of the paper deals with the possibility of limiting the fundamental rights enshrined in the Charter in order to protect the Member State’s national identity. In conclusion, the paper offers some summary considerations as to the Member States’ potential possibilities to apply a different level of fundamental rights protection from the point of view of the Court of Justice of the EU.
