EU Fundamental Rights Charter and civic space consultation opens

Civil society organisations active in the area of fundamental rights and other rights defenders are key for the implementation of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.

Together with the European Commission, FRA launched an online consultation with civil society about their role in the implementation of the Charter and the obstacles they face.

Civil society are invited to fill the consultation until 9 May 2022.

The results will feed into FRA’s work on civic space and the Commission’s annual report on the application of the EU Charter.

The report will be published in December 2022. It will focus on civic space, and its role in protecting and promoting the fundamental rights under the Charter.
