FRA took part in a workshop on “Right to Justice: Quality Legal Assistance for Unaccompanied Children”, organised by the European Council for Refugees and Exiles (ECRE), which took place on 4 March in Brussels.
On 6 March 2014, the day after FRA launched the results of its EU-wide survey on violence against women, EEA and Norway Grants organised a seminar in Brussels to discuss how the survey results could be used to support activities in the 15 EU Member States which are eligible for the grants.
The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) will lead the Europe-wide network of EU Agencies in 2014, the year in which the EU landscape is changing. With the European Parliament elections in May and a new European Commission in the autumn, EU Agencies remain well placed to showcase the EU’s added value.
This year International Women’s Day focuses on inspiring change. A recent report from the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) points to the need for wide-ranging change across many different areas to help combat high levels of violence against women across the European Union.
