EU agencies

FRA cooperates with a number of EU agencies on specific human rights topics, especially in the fields of Justice and Home Affairs, by approaching their work through the lens of non-discrimination; that is from a fundamental rights perspective.

The data that the FRA collects and analyses provides evidence that can aid agencies when they formulate operational responses by, for example, highlighting the victim's viewpoint. FRA also provides fundamental rights analysis and proposals for the integration or mainstreaming of a fundamental-rights dimension into a number of agencies' activities.

FRA works closely with the following agencies:

FRA has established cooperation agreements with Frontex, EIGE, EASO and the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound). The aim of the cooperation agreement is to formalise the close collaboration between the agencies and to ensure that the work in areas of mutual interest is carefully coordinated and managed in order to avoid duplication.
