FRA presents its civil society space work in Slovakia

The Agency has been invited to present findings and suggestions from its report on the Challenges facing civil society organisations working on human rights in the EU in Košice, Slovakia on 22 October, at the opening event of the Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway Grants’ Active Citizens Fund (ACF) for Slovakia.

FRA will present the challenges that civil society organisations are facing in the EU in four categories - regulatory environment, finance and funding, participation, and safe space.

The event is being organised by the Ekopolis Foundation, the Slovak grant operators of the Fund, in consortium with the Carpathian Foundation and Open Society Foundation. The event aims to present the focus and objectives of the programme and discuss key topics of importance to the Fund. FRA has a cooperation arrangement with the EEA and Norway Grants.
