The agency will present its latest and upcoming work on civic space to the Council of Europe’s Conference of INGOs, which will meet in Strasbourg on 12 April.
FRA will particularly focus on the outcomes of a consultation it held with its civil society network, the Fundamental Rights Platform (FRP) on their experiences with challenges to their work. The consultation findings are summarised in the civil society space: views of organisations paper. FRA will repeat this consultation annually. The civil society networks of FRA and of the Council of Europe cooperate closely; the elected president of the Conference of INGOs is also an observer to FRA’s Fundamental Rights Platform Advisory Panel.
