The outbreak of COVID-19 affects people’s daily life in the 27 EU Member States. As the number of infected people in the EU territory began to mount rapidly in February and March, governments put in place a raft of measures – often introduced in a period of only a few days – in an effort to contain the spread of the virus. Many of these measures reflect how, in exceptional emergency situations, the urgent need to save lives justifies restrictions on other rights, such as the freedom of movement and of assembly. This report outlines some of the measures EU Member States have put in place to protect public health during the COVID-19 pandemic. It covers the period 1 February – 20 March 2020.
Michael O'Flaherty talks in his vlog about the human rights aspects in the context of the Coronavirus epidemic and introduces FRA's new report.

The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) urges Member States to agree on a simple and practical workflow as soon as possible, to avoid lack of clarity and delays in the relocation process. This paper provides practical suggestions on relocation of unaccompanied children from Greece, building on lessons learned from previous mandatory and voluntary relocation schemes. The paper provides FRA input on the initiative of the European Commission and a group of Member States to relocate unaccompanied children.
In this edition of his vlog, Michael O'Flaherty talks about the human rights aspects in the context of the Corona virus epidemic.
In the latest edition of his video blog, FRA Director Michael O'Flaherty speaks about the publication of FRA's second LGBTI-survey on the 17th of March and how we can use the results to further battle discrimination.

Across the EU, people of African
descent face widespread and entrenched prejudice
and exclusion. Racial discrimination and harassment
are commonplace. Experiences with racist
violence vary, but reach as high as 14 %. Discriminatory
profiling by the police is a common reality.
Hurdles to inclusion are multi-faceted, particularly
when it comes to looking for jobs and housing.

FRA’s second EU Minorities and Discrimination survey (EU-MIDIS II) collected information from over 25,000 respondents with different ethnic minority and immigrant backgrounds across all 28 EU Member States. The main findings from the survey, published in 2017, pointed to a number of differences in the way women and men with immigrant backgrounds across the European Union (EU) experience how their rights are respected. This report summarises some of the most relevant survey findings in this regard, which show the need for targeted, gender-sensitive measures that promote the integration of – specifically – women who are immigrants or descendants of immigrants.

Στόχος του οδηγού με τίτλο Παιδιά που στερούνται τη γονική φροντίδα σε κράτος μέλος της
ΕΕ διαφορετικό από το δικό τους είναι η ενίσχυση της απόκρισης όλων των φορέων που είναι
αρμόδιοι για την προστασία των παιδιών. Η προστασία αυτών των κοριτσιών και αγοριών είναι
ύψιστης σημασίας και συνιστά υποχρέωση των κρατών μελών της ΕΕ, η οποία απορρέει τόσο
από το διεθνές όσο και από το ευρωπαϊκό νομικό πλαίσιο. Ο οδηγός επικεντρώνεται στα παιδιά
θύματα εμπορίας ανθρώπων και στα παιδιά που διατρέχουν κίνδυνο, υλοποιώντας μια δράση
που προβλέπεται στην Ανακοίνωση του 2017 για την εντατικοποίηση της δράσης της ΕΕ για την
καταπολέμηση της εμπορίας ανθρώπων, και λαμβάνει υπόψη τα προσδιορισθέντα πρότυπα,
όσον αφορά για παράδειγμα την έμφυλη διάσταση του συγκεκριμένου εγκλήματος.

Algorithms used in machine learning systems and artificial intelligence (AI) can only be as good as the data used for their development. High quality data are essential for high quality algorithms. Yet, the call for high quality data in discussions around AI often remains without any further specifications and guidance as to what this actually means.
