FRA at EESC civil society events

FRA spoke at two online conferences on civil society last week, organised by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC).

The event on 4 November discussed civil society perspectives on the European Rule of Law mechanism, while the event on 5 November focused on civil society organisations as key actors for the future or Europe.

Discussions included the challenges and barriers that civil society face in protecting fundamental rights and the rule of law, including concrete experiences by organisations from the ground.

Suggestions were made on how to strengthen the enabling framework for civil society organisations to operate, hence being able to contribute actively to the implementation of fundamental rights and the rule of law.
