FRA presented the findings from its research on fundamental rights at the EU’s southern sea borders to the European Home Affairs Commissioner, Cecilia Malmström, on 25 March. The findings were contained in a report which FRA will make public on 27 March.

The report draws on in-depth research carried out by FRA in four Member States. It describes hazardous journeys and deaths at sea, discusses current maritime surveillance mechanisms and cooperation with third countries, and details the treatment of migrants when they arrive on shore.
