The European Union is a supranational organisation with a set of
circumscribed powers. Although these powers do not include an
all-encompassing fundamental rights' mandate, today's existential
challenges - from economic to refugee crisis, via concerns for
compliance with the rule of law in some of its Member States -
increase the pressure on the EU to develop tools for protection and
promotion of such rights. One way of addressing the tension between
the lack of a general mandate and vivid calls for protection is for
the EU to focus on selected fundamental rights which it has
competence to regulate. One such example is EU law on the
fundamental right to equal treatment that has blossomed since the
late 1990s. In developing selected fundamental right policies that
can be imposed on domestic actors, as EU law does, supranational
intervention needs to be carefully tailored to the plural landscape
where they are intended to flourish. This monograph calls for a
nuanced use of the infrastructure of EU law to convey shared values
at domestic level across Europe.
