This is fra.europa.eu, the official website of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). It is managed by the web team in the Agency's Communication Department, and provides a wide range of information about the FRA's work, including its research and surveys, publications, events, co-operation activities and more.
In addition to this website, the FRA also maintains two online databases of fundamental rights-related information, which are:
- Charterpedia - a compilation of international, EU and national constitutional law structured around the Charter of Fundamental Rights
- Case law database - a comprehensive compilation of leading case law on discrimination on various grounds in the EU Member States
We have also developed a version of the Charterpedia specially for mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. To access it, go to the following URL on your mobile device:
