The Fundamental Rights and the Rule of Law group visited FRA

On 5 July, the Presidency of the the European Economic and Social Committee’s ad hoc group on Fundamental Rights and the Rule of Law (FRRL) visited FRA.

The Agency provided an update on its activities, such as the Fundamental Rights Report and its work on civic space, equality, business and human rights. Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPPS) and the fundamental rights conditionalities of EU funds were also discussed. FRA also presented an overview of its new projects on the impact of the war in Ukraine.

FRA and the FRRL ad hoc group have cooperated for several years. It acts as a forum for European civil society organisations to meet and share their assessment on the state of fundamental rights, democracy and rule of law in the Member States.
