A delegation from the European Parliament’s Employment Committee will visit the Agency on 9 May for the first time.
It will be an opportunity to explore areas of common interest where FRA’s work can contribute to the work of the Committee. The Agency will discuss the findings of its work on areas relevant to the Committee’s work. For example, in respect to the labour market, where the Agency is continuing its research on severe labour exploitation affecting EU and non-EU nationals.
FRA will also inform the Committee about its awareness raising and training activities with national Managerial Authorities of European Structural and Investment Funds. These activities support national authorities to fulfil their duty to comply with the Charter of Fundamental Rights when using EU funds, for example in order to improve Roma integration or to promote the de-institutionalisation and labour market inclusion for people with disabilities.
