Multiplying Fundamental Rights Charter knowledge with national experts

Organised By
FRA event
From 6 to 7 October, FRA will host an expert event on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in Vienna.

The invitees are a diverse group of national legal experts from EU Member States, including academics. They also include legal experts working at national courts, national human rights and ombuds institutions, national administrations as well as practising lawyers.

The workshop will include train-the-trainers sessions providing hands-on experience with the Agency’s new Charter case studies and trainers’ manual.

FRA will give participants an overview of its Charter materials and resources, including the Charter handbook (available in all official EU languages) to support national capacity building on the Charter. The European Commission will present their e-Justice Portal, the electronic one-stop shop in the area of justice, and the European Training Platform.

Impulse statements given by outstanding experts, including a current member of the Court of Justice in Luxembourg and a former member of the European Court of Human rights in Strasburg, will complement the programme.
