Fundamental Rights Report 2018 - FRA opinions

The year 2017 brought both progress and setbacks in terms of fundamental rights protection. FRA’s Fundamental Rights Report 2018 reviews major developments in the EU between January and December 2017, and outlines FRA’s opinions thereon.

Noting both achievements and remaining areas of concern, it provides insights into the main issues shaping fundamental rights debates across the EU.

This year’s focus chapter takes a look at the shift towards a rights-based approach to ageing. The remaining chapters discuss the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and its use by Member States; equality and non-discrimination; racism, xenophobia and related intolerance; Roma integration; asylum and migration; information society, privacy and data protection; rights of the child; access to justice; and developments in the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
