Who we are

Our staff includes legal experts, political and social scientists, statisticians, and communication specialists.

We work together to instil a fundamental rights culture across the EU.

We help bring the Charter to life for everyone in the EU.

The EU founded FRA as an independent body in 2007. Our headquarters are in Vienna.

FRA’s founding Regulation (EC) No. 168/2007 was amended in April 2022. The revised Regulation strengthens the Agency's mandate. It introduces important changes to how FRA currently operates and how it is governed.
