LERI is a qualitative action research project under FRA’s multi-annual Roma Programme. It was developed in response to the European Commission’s Communication on an EU Framework for National Roma integration strategies up to 2020. LERI brings together local authorities and residents, in particular Roma, to investigate how they can best be involved in Roma integration actions, and identify which aspects of these actions work, which do not, and why.
This guidance is intended to enhance the protection of child victims of trafficking. The guidance will consist of a handbook on guardianship for children deprived of parental care. The handbook will reinforce guardianship systems to cater to the specific needs of child victims of trafficking.
The project looks at the treatment of children in the justice systems of the European Union (EU), which is an important issue of concern for EU institutions and Member States.
This project will look at hostility, including violence, towards children with disabilities across the EU. It seeks to identify the legal and policy framework, as well as determine how information about such hostility is being collected. In addition, the project will look for examples of promising practices of how some Member States are addressing the problem.
Despite efforts at the national, European and international level to improve the social and economic integration of Roma in the European Union, many still face deep poverty, profound social exclusion, and discrimination, which often means limited access to quality education, jobs and services, low income levels, sub-standard housing conditions, poor health and lower life expectancy. These problems also present often insurmountable barriers to exercising their fundamental rights.
The project maps, defines and analyses what limitations people or legal entities in Europe face when conducting a business. It aims to highlight existing legislation and procedures in Member States, identify promising practices, as well as constraints in conducting business (including ‘cross-cutting’ issues such as non-discrimination and cross-border elements).
FRA has produced a handbook, in partnership with the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), which presents and explains European data protection law in a straightforward way for those working in this area.
The project involved the development of a handbook legal professionals on European law relating to asylum, borders and immigration.
