Ireland and the EU Lisbon Treaty

As readers may remember from previous posts, Ireland is the only country to have rejected the Treaty of Lisbon by referendum in June 2008. A new vote will take place this Friday. One important point raised during this last referendum campaign is whether the so-called Irish “legal guarantees” are legally binding. For my own thoughts on that topic, see http://www.ejiltalk.org/the-european-unions-lisbon-treaty-some-thoughts-on-the-irish-legal-guarantees/ 

And on the question of whether the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights represents a positive development in EU law, see the short piece I co-wrote with Prof. Schabas: http://humanrightsdoctorate.blogspot.com/2009/09/lisbon-treaty-will-be-good-for-human.html.

More on the results of the Irish referendum next week.
