The FRA's organisational structure includes a Scientific Committee.
The Scientific Committee shall be the guarantor of the scientific quality of the FRA's work and will be involved by the Director in the early stages of the preparation of the majority of FRA's documents drawn up to meet its tasks.
The Scientific Committee is composed of eleven independent persons, highly qualified in the field of fundamental rights.
- Prof Florence Benoit-Rohmer
- Dr Alpha Connelly
- Prof Patrick Devlieger
- Dr Peter Jambrek
- Mr Jeremy McBride (Chairperson)
- Dr Angela Me (Vice-Chairperson)
- Ms Kati Mustola
- Prof Stefano Rodotà
- Dr Patrick Simon
- Prof Jacqueline Dutheil de la Rochère
- Prof Armin von Bogdandy
The term of office of the members of the Scientific Committee shall be five years not renewable. The Scientific Committee elects its Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson for a term of office of one year. The term of office of the current Scientific Committee will be until 3 June 2013.
The Management Board appointed the members following a transparent call for applications and selection procedure after having consulted the competent committee of the European Parliament. The Management Board also had to ensure even geographical representation of members of the Scientific Committee. In addition, the members of the Management Board could not be members of the Scientific Committee.
In 2012 the FRA launched a new Call for Expressions of Interest for the members of the Scientific Committee. This Call is now closed. If you have applied for the membership to the Scientific Committee, check the selection status.
