Abstract

The article focuses on the role that fundamental rights have played in demonstrating the possibilities and need for constitutional dialogue in a European Union of 27 Member States. It argues more specifically that following enlargement, fundamental rights are necessary to foster essential constitutional communication between the various "languages" that courts speak within and beyond Central and Eastern Europe.

Keywords: EU, fundamental rights, Central and Eastern Europe, enlargement, courts
