Citizenship working group focuses on social inclusion

The Agency outlined promising practices of how to enhance social and civic competence drawn from its work during the European Commission’s Working Group on promoting citizenship through education.

The focus was on social and civic competences and social inclusion. FRA was able to bring examples from its work on children, Roma, engagement with local authorities and its Fundamental Rights Forum 2016 to support the exchange of information. The meeting led to an invitation to a meeting on migrants and education. The working group, which FRA is a member of, and meeting on 6-7 February in Brussels is a follow-up action to the Paris Declaration of EU education ministers.
