How can FRA’s report on the situation of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in the EU support the development of policies and standards at the EU, international and national level to help NHRIs?
This will be the goal of the report’s Advisory Board, as they will reflect on the report’s opinions and conclusions. They will meet at FRA on 29 January. FRA will publish the report in May 2020.
The members of the Advisory Board will also meet with the Advisory Panel of the Agency’s Fundamental Rights Platform to explore how to enhance cooperation between NHRIs and civil society. They will also discuss how to address civic space issues.
The board brings together representatives of European Network of National Human Rights Institutions, European Network of Equality Bodies, Global Alliance for National Human Rights Institutions, International Ombuds institutions Institute, Advisory panel of FRA’s Fundamental Rights Platform (FRP), European Commission, Council of Europe, Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) and two independent experts.
