The proposal to establish a European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO), mandated to prosecute crimes against the financial interests of the European Union, raises a number of fundamental rights issues. Following a request from the European Parliament, FRA has published an Opinion that analyses these issues and suggests ways of answering fundamental rights concerns.
On 15 November, FRA presented its joined-up fundamental rights toolkit to the European Committee on Local and Regional Democracy of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. FRA discussed the use and further development of the toolkit with representatives of local and regional authorities of Council of Europe member states.
FRA's latest opinion on the impact of EU equality legislation notes how people continue to face discrimination in their daily lives despite the considerable progress in terms of policies and laws nationally and EU-wide.
