Serbia will nominate an observer to take part in FRA Management Board meetings. It should also appoint a National Liaison Officer, a government official to act as the main point of contact between FRA and Serbia. The decision was made by the Stabilisation and Association Council on 8 May following a European Commission proposal for Serbia to become more closely involved in the Agency’s work.
Candidate countries and countries with which the EU has concluded a Stabilisation and Association agreement can be observers to the Agency following a specific procedure. In 2017, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia became an observer.
