Presenting FRA Fundamental Rights Report 2017 at high-level symposium

The Agency, in close cooperation with the Maltese Presidency of the EU Council, invites stakeholders to the high-level symposium 'Is Europe doing enough to protect fundamental rights?' where fundamental rights issues that are currently high on the EU’s political agenda will be discussed.

The Maltese President will address the event which will take place on 28 June in Brussels. The Agency’s annual Fundamental Rights Report will form the background for discussions. It will take stock of developments since 2007, the year in which the Agency was created. Discussions will explore how we can improve the protection, respect, and, especially, the promotion of fundamental rights. There will also be a special focus on child rights.

The high-level symposium forms part of the Agency’s 10th anniversary year flagship events.
