FRA toolkit helps public officials improve fundamental rights implementation

FRA has launched a practical toolkit designed to help public officials locally, regionally and nationally further improve fundamental rights’ protection and promotion by ‘joining’ together.

The online toolkit, ‘Joining up fundamental rights’, offers support to policy makers and practitioners who seek to coordinate fundamental rights initiatives across government and to implement them together with local authorities and civil society.

The online toolkit draws on the practical experiences of hundreds of local, regional and national government officials, policy makers and practitioners. It offers hands-on advice and tools on how to integrate fundamental rights thinking into policy development, service delivery and administrative practices.
