The subject Human Rights in the European Constitutional System II is thematically focused on the functioning of the concept of human rights protection in the theory and practice of European constitutionalism. Attention will be primarily given to the current development of European human rights standards in the context of selected current issues related to the protection of individual human rights, especially in relation to so-called vulnerable groups, such as LGBT+ individuals, migrating persons, ethnic minorities, or religious minorities. The aim is to utilize acquired knowledge about the functioning of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and the role of various EU bodies, especially the Court of Justice of the European Union, in the protection of human rights in specific contexts.

The teaching format is structured in such a way that the classic lecture serves as a foundation for further student and teacher activities. The goal of the course is to provide a space for professional discussion of current issues related to the protection of human rights in the EU context, based on relevant professional texts and legal acts. The teaching will be conducted in a manner that allows the development of essential legal competencies and skills. The discussions will also be accompanied by the ongoing writing of an essay, which is one of the study assessments. Considering the above, the course is primarily intended for those interested in the subject matter who are capable and willing to actively participate in the teaching.

The subject is taught in both Czech and English, and students are required to have a basic knowledge of constitutional law, European law, and political science. The taught topic is designed as a two-semester course, meaning that the teaching in the Human Rights in the European Constitutional System II. subject builds on the knowledge gained in the Human Rights in the European Constitutional System I. course. Although completing the first (winter) semester is not set as a prerequisite, it is recommended.
