Fundamental Rights Forum - connect.reflect.act – Brochure (676.87 KB)

See the Fundamental Rights Forum website >>

The Forum promises to connect practitioners, grassroots workers, thinkers and high-level decision makers in an inclusive and open platform. It will look at existing challenges and good practices as well as future challenges and opportunities. There will also be space to enable dynamic and respectful dialogue, and knowledge sharing where different views can stimulate innovative ways forward.

Overall, the Forum aims at having a tangible impact for the benefit of everyone in the EU. We encourage actors to apply the knowledge and ideas gained, and work together to strengthen fundamental rights for all.

Participation in the Forum is upon invitation only but can be followed online in English, French and German.
