This year’s Fundamental Rights Report reflects on the developments and shortfalls of human rights protection in the EU over the past year.

In its focus section, it highlights how awareness and the use of the EU’s Fundamental Rights Charter by national governments remain limited despite being legally binding for 10 years. It shows that national courts are making more use of the Charter of Fundamental Rights. 

The report’s remaining chapters review the main developments of 2019 regarding: equality and non-discrimination; racism, xenophobia and related intolerance; Roma equality and inclusion; asylum, borders and migration; information society, privacy and data protection; rights of the child; access to justice; and implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
