Joined-up governance for fundamental rights

Joined-up governance describes a strategy that aims to coordinate the development and implementation of fundamental rights across government structures. This is done by developing cooperation and coordination mechanisms and tools that link up efforts at local, regional, national, EU and international levels (multi-level), as well as different governmental sectors on one level (cross-sector).

Joined-up governance involves not only government departments and agencies, but also independent bodies and civil society, to work across organisational boundaries towards one common goal: making fundamental rights a reality for all.
