Abstract

The incorporation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities into the legal order of the European Union acquires a centrality relevant to the interpretation of the fundamental rules within the framework of the catalog of rights enshrined in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. The case-law of the Court of Justice of the European Union constantly reminds us that the Convention is an integral part of the legal order of the European Union and prevails over European Union law.
