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.
This annual overview provides an update of the most recent figures on antisemitic incidents, covering the period 1 January 2008 – 31 December 2018, across the EU Member States, where data are available. It includes a section that presents evidence from international organisations. In addition, for the first time, it provides an overview of how Member States that have adopted or endorsed the non-legally binding working definition of antisemitism adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) (2016) use or intend to use it.
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.
Based on FRA’s second large-scale survey on experiences and perceptions of antisemitism, this report focuses on the perspectives of young Jewish Europeans (aged 16-34) living in twelve EU Member States. It first describes this particular group and takes a look at defining antisemitism and understanding the place of Israel in it.
Fundamental Rights Report 2019: Ten years after the UN’s Disability Convention entered into force, 2018 saw it continue
to drive advances in disability rights across the EU.
Fundamental Rights Report 2019: Not all children benefit equally from efforts to guarantee child rights.
Some groups face particular difficulties.
Fundamental Rights Report 2019: Anti-Gypsyism across the EU remains a persistent barrier to improving the social and

This technical report presents in detail all the stages
of the survey and the relevant information needed to
assess the quality and reliability of the data, as well
as considerations for interpreting the survey results.
The following chapters of the report cover the procedures
used in the development and administration
of the survey.
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.
Το 2018 υπήρξε έτος προόδου, αλλά και προβλημάτων όσον αφορά την προστασία των θεμελιωδών δικαιωμάτων. Στην Έκθεση για τα Θεμελιώδη Δικαιώματα 2019 του FRA εξετάζονται οι σημαντικότερες εξελίξεις στον τομέα και προσδιορίζονται όχι μόνο τα επιτεύγματα, αλλά και τα ζητήματα που εξακολουθούν να προκαλούν ανησυχία. Στην παρούσα δημοσίευση παρουσιάζονται οι γνώμες του FRA σχετικά με τις κυριότερες εξελίξεις στους εξεταζόμενους θεματικούς τομείς και συνοπτική τεκμηρίωση των γνωμών αυτών.
In the latest edition of his video blog, FRA Director Michael O'Flaherty talks about discrimination on the basis of age in the EU and calls for more respect for Human- and Fundamental Rights of older people.
Despite efforts by the European Union (EU) and its Member States to reduce gender inequalities among citizens of Roma origin, important gender differences persist. Drawing on FRA’s own EU-MIDIS II survey research in nine EU Member States this report highlights the position of Roma women in education, employment and health, as well as the extent to which they experience hate-motivated discrimination, harassment and physical violence.
In the light of the events in New Zealand, Michael O'Flaherty talks about discrimination and hate crime against Muslims in the EU and makes 4 proposals on how to make Muslims feel more safe.
The Compendium of Practices on Equality Data is the product of the Subgroup on Equality Data, which was set up in February 2018 by the EU High Level Group on Non-Discrimination, Diversity and Equality and is facilitated by FRA. The Subgroup on Equality Data brings together representatives of EU Member States and Norway, the European Commission, Eurostat and FRA with the aim to support Member States in their efforts to improve the collection and use of equality data.
Στην παρούσα έκθεση παρουσιάζονται τα κύρια ευρήματα της δεύτερης έρευνας του

τους Εβραίους που έχει διεξαχθεί ποτέ σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο.
