Commentary to Article 37 – Environmental Protection

Elisa Morgera, Gracia Marin Duran

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This paper analyzes Article 37 (Environmental Protection) of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights from the viewpoints of EU law and international environmental law. It explores the reasons for the lack of any individually justifiable environmental right of a substantive or procedural character under the Charter. The paper then investigates the potential of Article 37 to influence the interpretation and application of EU law and of other Charter provisions in the light of the EU Treaty requirement of environmental integration.
