With the adoption of the Lisbon Treaty in 2009, the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights has acquired a legally binding character. This is a significant development as the Charter states that ‘that any discrimination based on any ground such as sex, race, colour, ethnic or social origin, genetic features, language, religion or belief, political or any other opinion, membership of a national minority, property, birth, disability, age or sexual orientation’ is forbidden.

In this context there is a representational vacuum for other public interests which civil society can address. At present, non-state actors of different kinds and state bureaucracies, when de facto entrusted with a political role, are important actors and loci of distinctive representation activities.
