Assessing the attempts to forge a Constitution for Europe, this article focuses on the incorporation of the Charter of Fundamental Rights. While clearly legitimate to a post-national democracy and the idea of a constitution, rights should nevertheless be right in the sense of resting on a popular-discursive consensus.
