FRA welcomes Croatia to the EU

The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) looks forward to fully engaging with Croatia in helping it to further protect and promote fundamental rights, as it becomes the EU’s newest Member State on 1 July.

Croatia has had observer status with FRA since May 2010, with representatives sitting on its management board and Croatian civil society organisations are already active in its Fundamental Rights Platform. FRA has covered Croatia in its more recent fundamental rights work, such as the its Annual report 2012, and its LGBT survey. FRA will continue to strengthen its research ties and cooperation with Croatian fundamental rights institutions and organisations to help them make fundamental rights a reality for everyone in Croatia.
