This year’s FRA annual report highlights challenges and achievements in the area of fundamental rights from across the EU. It also considers the impact of the current crisis on the rule of law, as well as what Member States are doing to ensure trust in their justice systems.
“The EU and its Member States have over the years successfully built a robust fundamental rights infrastructure. However, in many areas, both the EU and Member States can, and must, still do better,” says FRA Director Morten Kjaerum. “Our latest annual report shows that the current crisis is also a test for fundamental rights, and has implications for democratic legitimacy and the rule of law.”
