Please be informed that FRA is not currently accepting applications for FRP participation due to an ongoing revision of the FRP structures. The envisaged changes will enable FRA to work more closely with civil society organisations. Once the necessary structural enhancements are in place, information about how to participate in the platform will be communicated on this page.
Civil Society Organisations which participate in the work of the Fundamental Rights Platform have accepted the overall Code of Conduct and:
- are based in one of the EU Member States;
- are unreservedly committed to respecting fundamental rights as enshrined in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and the European Convention of Human Rights, and to working for their advancement, protection and promotion;
- have specific expertise, proven experience and capacity with regard to the protection and promotion of these rights;
