About the Fundamental Rights Conferences (FRC)
The Fundamental Rights Conferences (FRC) create a space for policy-makers, experts and human rights defenders to examine key fundamental rights challenges and develop courses of action that better guarantee their protection.
The FRC intends to be:
- A forum to pool knowledge on fundamental rights and to share experience on developing good practices;
- A catalyst for developing an evidence-based approach to decision-making and practice;
- An opportunity to forge strategic partnerships between fundamental rights actors from local to supranational level.
The FRC brings together around 250-300 experts from national governments, EU bodies, intergovernmental organisations, local authorities, civil society and specialised bodies on human rights.
