FRA has therefore developed rights-based indicator frameworks in areas of its competence, such as for the rights of the child, Roma and persons with disabilities. This allows to assess the status and outcomes of efforts to implement policy goals and policy cycles such as the European Semester. Using these rights-based indicators to assess whether specific actions or measures have reached their targets could facilitate a better understanding of drivers and barriers in policy implementation. From a fundamental rights perspective, this will allow for better law making and render policymaking more transparent while also holding policymakers accountable for their actions. In the long run, this will strengthen democratic legitimacy and entrench a fundamental rights culture in whatever the EU does.
