Over the last decade, new fundamental rights laws and policies have been adopted and specialist institutions created. But fundamental rights challenges still remain and rights are under attack, underlining the lack of a fundamental rights culture across institutions and societies, as the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) reveals in its 2017 Fundamental Rights Report.
The Agency presented some of the fundamental rights implications related to the European Travel Information and Authorisation System at a meeting of the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs on 16 May in Brussels.
Asylum seekers and refugees in many parts of Europe risk being confined to a life of inequality and disadvantage due to gaps in their education and the lack of support in schools for trauma victims. These are some of the main concerns from the latest summary report of the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) on migration-related fundamental rights in selected EU Member States which assesses the educational prospects of migrants.
The Agency held a fundamental rights workshop for hotspots operators in Taranto on 11 May in cooperation with the Italian Ministry of Interior, the European Commission migrants support team in Italy and in partnership with the UNHCR and International Organization for Migration.
