Abstract

The foregoing parts have demonstrated the relevance of the notion of individual rights in European Union law. The key issue in the following part will be to determine whether or not rights are conferred upon individuals.

The foregoing parts have demonstrated the relevance of the notion of individual rights in European Union law. The key issue in the following part will be to determine whether or not rights are conferred upon individuals.

In this respect, I will first consider the different legal sources from which an individual may potentially derive European Union law rights (Chap.  15). Second, I will discuss the interpretive process in order to determine whether a particular legal provision entails the grant of individual rights (Chap.  16). Subsequently, I will make some remarks on the variety of rights with which Union law deals (Chap.  17). Lastly, the type of connection that exists between an individual and the right granting provision will be scrutinized, namely how the protective purpose is determined (Chap.  18) and how the limits of protection are defined (Chap.  19). A short summary is provided at the end of Part 4 (Chap.  20).
