FRA took part in the first of a series of thematic workshops on 28 April in Rome.
It was organised by the Interministerial Committee for Human Rights and Fondazione Brodolini, and hosted by the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs. The aim is to establish closer cooperation and liaison among national actors to improve the quality and reliability of collecting fundamental rights data. FRA gave a presentation about itself, and discussed current and future research work and projects concerning the integration of immigrants, such as Social Inclusion and Migrants’ Participation in Society, its second EU Minorities and Discrimiation Survey, and the Fundamental Rights Survey, as well as the forthcoming Fundamental Rights Forum in June. The workshop also discussed key developments in the area of integration, underlining the importance of policy responses to the related challenges that the EU and its Member States are facing.
