From 25 to 27 June, representatives of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) from across the EU, Serbia and North Macedonia will gather at FRA.

Then on 28 June, the advisory group for the report will report looking at cooperation opportunities.

The group includes representatives from the United Nations Human Rights Office (OHCHR), OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), Council of Europe, European Commission, Advisory Panel of FRA’s civil society-network, the International Ombudsman Institute (IOI), Global Alliance of NHRIs (GANHRI), European Network of NHRIs (ENNHRI), European Network of Equality Bodies (Equinet) and two independent experts.
