FRA joins EASO network of courts meeting

The agency took part in the annual coordination and planning meeting of the European Asylum Support Office (EASO) Network of Courts and Tribunals.

The meeting brought together judges from 27 EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries, alongside participants from the EU Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights, as well as UNHCR, the European Judicial Training Network, the International Association of Refugee and Migration Judges, the Academy of European Law and FRA.

It was an opportunity to discuss the activities planned by EASO with representatives of the Member States’ judiciary in 2019 and beyond. The network expressed its intention to better involve FRA in its activities with a view to further strengthening the fundamental rights component of its work.

The meeting took place from 21 to 22 January in Malta at EASO.
