5th FRP meeting

Networking
Cooperation
Exchange

The annual Fundamental Rights Platform (FRP) meeting is one of the flagship events of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). The meeting brings together participants of the Fundamental Rights Platform – the agency’s network for cooperation with over 300 civil society organisations working on a variety of fundamental rights issues across the European Union.

With about 180 civil society organisations attending the event in Vienna, the meeting offers plenty of opportunities for networking, good practice exchange as well as constructive discussions on how to improve fundamental rights situation in the European Union.

Themes

This year the meeting has a special focus on two themes:

  1. cooperation between national human rights institutions, equality bodies and civil society protecting victims’ rights and addressing under-reporting; and
  2. multiple discrimination: mainstreaming intersectionality into fundamental rights work.

Interactive workshops

The FRP meeting will be very dynamic and interactive, including a number of opportunities for all participants to contribute to the discussions and shape together its outcomes. ‘The floor is yours’ will invite all participants to present ideas, projects or issues that are important to the fundamental rights debate in the EU, and discuss these with other peers. Thematic workshops with FRA experts will invite you to get to know the agency’s work better, as well as to give input to specific FRA projects. More information >>
