Advisory Panel of FRA’s Fundamental Rights Platform discusses next steps for Platform

The Advisory Panel of the Agency’s Fundamental Rights Platform (FRP) will meet from 14 to 15 June in Vienna.

The Platform is FRA’s channel for cooperation and information exchange with civil society organisations active in the field of fundamental rights, bringing together over 600 civil society organisations.

The Panel will focus on the future development of the FRP and the upcoming Fundamental Rights Forum 2018. The Advisory Panel will also be consulted on FRA’s work programme and its Annual Fundamental Rights Report.

Building on FRA’s recent report on ‘Challenges facing civil society organisations working on human rights in the EU’, the Advisory Panel will also discuss how to use the Platform to strengthen civil society organisations.

It will provide input to the planned online consultation with Platform organisations about their own experiences on challenges to their work, which will be carried out in September.
