Multi-level coordination

Multi-level coordination is commonly referred to as multi-level governance. It refers to coordinated action by the European Union, the Member States, and/or local and regional authorities within Member States’ national administrations. The responsibility to implement fundamental rights is shared between different levels of governance (vertical coordination), from the local to the EU level. Without this kind of coordination, there is a clear risk that fundamental rights issues, which commonly require such coordination, are neglected.
