Foundations of European Law

With negotiations now resumed after a period of inactivity, is it still important that the EU accedes to
the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR)? If so, why – and if not, why not?
Advice: This expects a clear answer to the basic question to frame your discussion, and there is plenty of
literature on the Accession to ECHR issue, both before and after the Opinion 2/13 case (CJEU Opinion 2/13 on
the draft Agreement for the EU’s Accession to the ECHR). The case itself is important background context but
note the question is not asking specifically for a critical analysis of it.
