The Fundamental Rights Platform is FRA’s civil society cooperation channel.
FRA cooperates with civil society organisations from across the European Union and in States having observer status with FRA (North Macedonia, Serbia, Albania).
This cooperation is defined in Article 10 of the EU Regulation on FRA’s Founding Regulation.
The Platform’s Terms of Reference explain how this cooperation works.
The Platform serves to:
A large variety of organisations involved in fundamental rights are invited to cooperate within the platform, such as non-governmental organisations; trade unions, employers’ organisations and other professional organisations; churches, religious, philosophical and non-confessional organisations; universities and other experts from international or European organisations. Platform organisations are welcome whether they work at the local, national, European or international level.
Civil society organisations register themselves in the Platform database. Registration to the Platform database is free and not subject to any time constraints; any organisation is also free to deregister at any time. When they register in the database, organisations agree to fulfil the criteria listed in Article 2 of the Platform’s Terms of Reference. These include respecting and promoting fundamental rights, and refraining from any conduct going against the fundamental rights of any person or group of people. The Platform is not an ‘organisation’ or a body of FRA. There is no ’membership’.
