Charting the Charter

On 16 and 17 June, Equinet, the European network of equality bodies, will host a conference in Brussels dedicated to the role and importance of the EU’s Fundamental Rights Charter in safeguarding fundamental rights, ensuring equality and combating discrimination.

The conference will have a particular focus on the practical use and benefits of the Charter for equality bodies. FRA will present its Charterpedia and its findings regarding the use of the Charter at the national level, especially by national courts, drawing on new data from the Agency’s Annual report 2014 and from previous reports.
