Comparing EU and US experiences of fundamental rights protection

During a visit to the US on 21-22 October 2013, FRA's Director Morten Kjaerum addressed the Migration Policy Institute as part of a wider discussion about the ongoing challenge of ensuring human rights for migrants on both sides of the Atlantic.

He also had a series of meetings with US government officials, to exchange information related to EU-US practices related to antisemitism, disability and LGBT issues, as well as hate crime. In addition, he met with World Bank staff to share knowledge about the Agency's work related to Roma and LGBT issues.

Finally, he visited the US Holocaust Memorial Museum to exchange experience about approaches to holocaust and human rights education.
