On the occasion of Universal Children’s Day, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), the Council of Europe, and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), launch a handbook on European law relating to rights of the child.
Trans people across the EU are often marginalised, and live in isolation or fear, as FRA research has shown. Transgender Day of Remembrance on 20 November is a day to remember the suffering transphobia has caused and a time to raise awareness of the need to better protect the rights of trans people.
On 13 November, FRA presented the findings of its children and justice report to members of two working groups responsible for drafting laws, one of which is looking at juvenile justice and the other at the transposition of the EU’s Victims’ Directive.
The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has published a report today looking into the legal arrangements that govern intelligence services and their surveillance practices in the EU Member States. It underlines the challenges of protecting citizens while safeguarding the fundamental rights that underpin European societies.
Around 1 in 8 women have experienced sexual violence before they were 15, according to FRA research. Such widespread abuse points to the urgent need to renew efforts to tackle this pervasive problem, as the first-ever European day against child sexual abuse and sexual exploitation on 18 November helps remind us.
Following the attacks in France that have killed at least 128 people, the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights expresses its sadness and sympathy with the families and friends of those who died or were injured.
