At this year's annual seminar of the Council of Europe's European Commission against Racism and Intolerance which the FRA regularly attends, the agency will deliver a keynote speech on the expansion of specialised bodies. The speech will be delivered in the overall context of this year's topic, namely the challenges and trends for anti-discrimination bodies in Europe.

The event seeks to discuss the challenges which are emerging from the reforms initiated by several Member States to create a single national authority in charge to combat all forms of discrimination and to safeguard human rights in general.
