In this paper the authors describe and analyze the case law of the European Court in Luxembourg regarding the protection of human rights by European Union institutions. Although initially the European Court showed no particular interest in the protection of human rights, with time it developed a very rich case law and determined the principles for the protection of human rights which must be respected in all EU countries. With the adoption of the 2000 Charter of Fundamental Rights, which made it binding on the EU institutions to respect human rights, these principles themselves became obligatory. Following the adoption of the Lisbon Treaty, and the amendments to the European Convention on Human Rights, a new phase of the protection of human rights began in which the EU was to become party to the Convention, and its acts would be investigated by the European Court for Human Rights in Strasbourg. The article discusses the interaction between the two courts that will be soon acquiring an institutional framework.
