    Der Zugang zur Justiz ist ein bedeutendes Element der Rechtsstaatlichkeit. Einzelne erhalten so die
    Möglichkeit, sich gegen eine Verletzung ihrer Rechte zu schützen, im Falle unerlaubter Handlungen
    Rechtsbehelfe geltend zu machen, die Exekutive zur Verantwortung zu ziehen und sich selbst in
    Strafsachen zu verteidigen. Dieses Handbuch fasst die zentralen Grundsätze des europäischen
    Rechts im Bereich des Zugangs zur Justiz zusammen.

Severe labour exploitation is widespread across the European Union. While workplace inspections can help counter this phenomenon, they need to be strengthened to do so effectively. Based on interviews and focus group discussions with almost 240 exploited workers active in diverse economic sectors, this report provides important evidence on how unscrupulous employers manipulate and undermine inspections, and on what can be done to counteract such efforts.

Workers are being severely exploited for their labour across the EU, and
inspections are not effective at stopping this reality. Based on interviews with
almost 240 workers – including non-EU citizens who came to the EU and
EU nationals who moved to another EU country to work – a new FRA report
outlines the problem and identifies ways to bolster inspections.

The year 2017 brought both progress and setbacks in terms of rights protection. The European Pillar of Social Rights marked an important move towards a more ‘social Europe’. But, as experiences with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights underscore, agreement on a text is merely a first step. Even in its eighth year as the EU's binding bill of rights, the Charter's potential was not fully exploited, highlighting the need to more actively promote its use.

Angesichts der wachsenden Bedrohungen durch Terrorismus, Cyber-Angriffe und ausgefeilte grenzüberschreitende kriminelle Netze ist die Arbeit der Nachrichtendienste dringlicher, vielschichtiger und internationaler geworden. Diese Arbeit kann einen starken Eingriff in die Grundrechte darstellen, und hierbei insbesondere in die Achtung der Privatsphäre und den Datenschutz. Obgleich der stetige technologische Fortschritt die Bedrohung eines solchen Eingriffs potentiell verschlimmert, kann das Missbrauchspotential durch wirksame Aufsicht und Rechtsbehelfe eingedämmt werden.

The right to access justice and all other relevant procedural rights are not just rights in themselves; they also protect against violations of every other right. Respect for children’s rights in the area of justice is therefore essential. International treaties, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, European Union (EU) secondary law, and national legislation provide a number of relevant rights.

Rund 2,5 Millionen Kinder nehmen jedes Jahr an Gerichtsverfahren in der gesamten Europäischen
Union (EU) teil; dabei geht es um die Scheidung ihrer Eltern, oder aber sie sind Opfer oder
Zeugen von Straftaten geworden. Obwohl eine wirksame Beteiligung von Kindern an solchen
Verfahren entscheidend ist, um die Arbeitsweise der Justiz zu verbessern, ist der Umgang mit
Kindern in den Justizsystemen nach wie vor besorgniserregend.

Around 2.5 million children participate in judicial proceedings across the European Union (EU) every year, affected by parental divorce or as victims of, or witnesses to, crime. Although their effective participation in such proceedings is vital for improving the operation of justice, the treatment of children in justice systems remains a concern. FRA investigated to what extent children’s rights to be heard, to be informed, to be protected, and to non-discrimination are fulfilled in practice.

Protecting the human rights of individuals subject to criminal proceedings is an essential element of the rule of law. Persons who are suspected or accused of crimes in countries other than their own are particularly vulnerable, making appropriate procedural safeguards especially crucial. This report reviews Member States’ legal frameworks, policies and practices regarding the important rights provided in these directives, including with respect to individuals whose needs may require additional attention, such as persons with disabilities and children.
The Agency’s Director, Michael O’Flaherty, took part in a meeting of the European Parliament Employment Committee on 8 November.
