Fundamental rights at Europe’s crossroads

The FRA Director spoke of the need to rebuild a Europe rooted in the universal values of human rights during his keynote address at the FIDE 2018 Congress on 24 May in Estoril.

He acknowledged that Europe currently stands at the crossroads of either abandoning the values on which the EU is built or rebuilding a Europe of which we can proud. For him the choice is clear: guided by EU law, we must travel the path of reinvigoration.

The congresses, organised by the International Federation for European Law (FIDE), are held every two years. They are conferences on EU law that bring together leading minds in the area to exchange ideas and visions for developing EU law.
