Abstract

The study analyses the relationship between the new Hungarian constitution (officially “Fundamental Law of Hungary”) in force since January 1, 2012 and the normative values of the European Union with special regard to the legally binding Charter of Fundamental Rights that transforms the general values into individual rights. Prior to this it is worth to give an overview of the characteristics of the Union founding principles [Article 2 TEU] and human rights standard [Article 6 TEU] because these serve as benchmarks of the Hungarian fundamental rights catalogue, and some clauses influencing its interpretation in the new constitution.

Keywords: constitution of Hungary, EU values, Charter of Fundamental Rights
