About the FRP

The Fundamental Rights Platform (FRP) is FRA’s network of civil society organisations. Through this network, participant organisations can play an active role in FRA’s work. Organisations can apply to join the FRP by answering regular calls for participation.

With over 300 civil society organisations working on numerous fundamental rights issues across the EU, the FRP is the agency’s channel for cooperation and information exchange. Bringing together a diverse group of actors on the European, national, and local levels, it is a unique forum that allows a truly European debate on fundamental rights.

Through the FRP, civil society organisations are directly informed about the agency’s work, explore synergies with their activities, and provide valuable input into the FRA’s Annual Work Programme and Annual Report, helping to better tailor the agency’s work to the real needs of European citizens.
