FRA discusses cooperation with future Italian EU Presidency

On 12-13 May, the FRA Director will visit Italy, as it prepares for its Presidency of the Council of the EU which will begin on 1 July.

The Director will explore common areas for cooperation during the presidency and further develop relations with key partners and stakeholders in Italy. Meetings are envisaged with the Ministries of Justice and Interior, and the Inter-ministerial Committee on Human Rights, among others. The FRA Director has also been invited to address relevant parliamentary committees of the two chambers of the Italian Parliament and will have a meeting with civil society organisations to update them on FRA’s work.
