FRA continues to feed UN monitoring mechanisms

The agency has for several years submitted extracts from its published materials to the United Nations Human Rights Office in relation to the Universal Periodic Review of the Human Rights Council, the Treaty Bodies, and Special Procedures when EU Member States are being reviewed.

In addition, the agency responds to specific calls for thematic input. So far in 2019, FRA has contributed to a call for good human rights practices in local governments, in relation to trafficking and global migration, in relation to minority rights in Spain, and in relation to a study by the Working Group on Persons with African Descent.
