On 16 November, the Agency started to work in a new configuration to better meet the challenges of delivering on its strategic priorities 2018-2022 while continuing to enhance its standing as the EU’s unique and independent centre of human rights excellence.
A dedicated Research and Data Unit will collect robust, comparable evidence across the EU – the hallmark of the Agency.
A new Institutional Cooperation and Networks Unit will work closely with the Agency’s EU, international and national partners to reinforce human rights systems and frameworks.
A new Technical Assistance and Capacity Building Unit will allow FRA to better provide real-time assistance and expertise. This includes practical guidance to support fundamental rights-compliant implementation of policies, as well as on-the-ground support.
The Communications and Events Unit will be responsible for effectively promoting rights using traditional as well as modern communication channels.
Underpinning all this, the Corporate Services Unit will support the Agency’s operational work.
