Improving the situation of human rights defenders in the EU

FRA will present the situation of human rights defenders in the EU during the EU NGO Forum in Brussels from 3 to 4 December.

The annual Forum is organised by the EU’s External Action Service (EEAS) together with the Human Rights and Democracy Network (HRDN). This year the focus is on human rights: building a fair environmental future. 

On 4-5 December, FRA will then speak at the European Civic Forum conference ‘Civil Society for rights and equality’ about an enabling framework for civil society and the role of the EU. Both presentations will draw on FRA’s civic space work.
