Bibliographical note

The launch of the collection « Cahiers européens » in 2011 - with its first number on The constitutional identity as apprehended by judges in Europe - was intended to reintegrate the "national" aspect to the research of the Union. This approach is not aimed to strengthen even more the disciplinary boundaries, which would exclude any other ways of critically analysing the European integration, but it is intended to ensure that the national agenda, constituting integral part of the European agenda, is not ignored in the European studies. The tenth number of the collection « Cahiers européens appears just at the right time. The book on the Charter of Fundamental Rights as apprehended by judges in Europe is the result of almost three years of collective research; it has been conducted with researchers and colleagues from twenty-two member States of the European Union and it was elaborated on the basis of an analytical framework to assess all the phases and means in which the Charter of Fundamental Rights could be « apprehended » by different national stakeholders; the research aimed to measure to what extent the Charter is effective. while bearing in mind that the instrument has been conceived and drafted in order to enshrine and make visible the European Union's values.
