FRA gave a presentation to the European Group of National Human Rights Institutes (NHRIs) at the 26th Session of the International Coordinating Committee of National Institutions for the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights.

The session on 7 May in Geneva was organised by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). It was attended by more than 40 representatives of European NHRIs, as well as representatives from Equinet, the Council of Europe and OSCE-ODIHR. FRA gave an update on its work, and focused on how best to strengthen cooperation between FRA and NHRIs, particularly concerning the forthcoming Annual FRA-NHRBs meeting in October 2013 which is being organised together with the Council of Europe, Equinet and the European Group of NHRIs.
