As EU ministers meet to discuss the future of the EU’s policies on freedom, security and justice, the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) outlines practical suggestions in its Annual report about how to ensure people in the EU can have their rights better protected. It also maps out the fundamental rights challenges and achievements that took place over the course of 2013.
On 3 December 2013, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) presents its Fundamental rights-based police training manual at the International Conference on Human Rights Education and Training for the Civil and Public Service in Dublin, Ireland. FRA is hosting a workshop for law enforcement officials at the conference to present and answer questions about the training manual.
This year’s Fundamental Rights Conference focuses on ‘Combating hate crime in the EU’. The event, an annual milestone for fundamental rights in the EU, brought together 400 policy makers and practitioners from the EU and its Member States. This included representatives from international, EU and national bodies, parliamentarians, law enforcement officers, civil society and many more.
The FRA met with key stakeholders on 11 November, ahead of its Fundamental Rights Conference on 12-13 November, to discuss the findings of its survey on perceptions and experiences of hate crimes against Jews, which was published last week.
