Young men and women with different skin color

Fundamental rights belong to everyone in the EU. It does not matter who you are, what you believe or how you choose to live.

We help promote and protect those rights, including your rights to:

  • Be free from discrimination on the basis of age, disability or ethnic background
  • Have your personal data protected
  • Get access to justice

We work with stakeholders from the local to international level. Our team shares evidence-based insights and expert advice with policy- and decision-makers.
