FRA Director discusses rights challenges with civil society

On 9 November, FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty met with over 20 civil society organisations active in Brussels for a roundtable discussion. The meeting aimed to hear their concerns about the current fundamental rights situation.

It was also an opportunity to discuss findings from recent FRA studies. This included antisemitism, racism against people of African descent, the impact of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine on fundamental rights in the EU, fundamental rights risks at the EU’s external borders, and the challenges to fundamental rights posed by digitalisation.
