Further integration of fundamental rights into Schengen evaluations

The Agency gave a refresher course on fundamental rights to Schengen evaluation trainers in the field of border management and return on 15 September.

Participants from EU Member States, the European Commission, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency and FRA took part. A member of the European Committee against Torture (CPT) attended providing input on methodology and detention conditions. The training covered methodological questions (how to prepare on-site missions, what to look for during missions, how to draft findings relating to fundamental rights), detention conditions and protecting asylum applicants, potential victims of human trafficking and children at risk.
