Summary/Abstract: In the last decade a new tendency has emerged in European legislation and in legal and philosophical thinking, by virtue whereof one must get back to a more general meaning of liberty, from the perspective of which the community rights required by communal life, which cannot be covered by the individual rights of man, could be organised into a non-exclusive, but rather complementary relationship with each other, on which grounds it would be simply possible. In this case the dogmatic legal philosophical way of looking must give place to solutions in which the two aforementioned means of regulation can exist side by side (individual and collective rights, based on the fact that an optimal level of real freedom could be attained by the joint application of the two). There is already some advancement toward the direction of this construction, and in what follows we will try to direct our attention to the documents that are relevant from this perspective, as well as the principles laid down therein.
