European Union Law is a body of law which is directly related to the member and candidate states of the European Union. This branch of law is basically established and carried out through international conventions. The EU member or candidate states must adapt to the international conventions and bring their domestic rules of law in compliance with these conventions. Also Turkey makes amendments in her domestic law in accordance with international agreements within the scope of membership negotiations with the EU. Individuals or institutions are directly affected by these amendments. Particularly human rights violations have an important place within the scope of this legislation. Provided that Turkey violates the individuals' fundamental rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution of the Republic of Turkey, in such a case, there may be an application to the European Court of Human Rights.
