Over 200 civil society organisations are taking part in the FRA's Fundamental Rights Platform (FRP) in Vienna on 10 and 11 April 2014. The FRP meeting allows civil society and FRA to discuss emerging fundamental rights issues, exchange knowledge and share good practices.
FRA’s annual Fundamental Rights Platform (FRP) meeting has just started. This year, the focus is on “Future fundamental rights priorities in the area of freedom, security and justice – The contribution of civil society”. The plenary sessions can be watched live where can follow the panel debate on “what’s next for fundamental rights in the EU?”
On 8 April, International Roma Day, FRA spoke at a panel discussion on Roma policy in Austria and the EU at an event organised by the contact point for Integration Policy of the region of Lower Austria in St. Pölten.
On 8 April, we will celebrate World Roma Day. However, far more effort is needed in EU Member States to implement national strategies for Roma integration and achieve their aim of improving Roma people’s opportunities and their full access to fundamental rights.
