    Every child has a right to be protected even when they are accused or suspected of committing a crime. The basic principles of justice apply to adults and children alike. But children face specific obstacles during criminal proceedings, such as a lack of understandable information about their rights, limited legal support and poor treatment. The report looks at the practical implementation of Directive (EU) 2016/800 on procedural safeguards for children who are suspects or accused persons in criminal proceedings in nine Member States – Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Estonia, Italy, Malta, Poland and Portugal.

Victims of violent crime have various rights, including to protection and to access justice. But how are these rights playing out in practice? Are victims of violent crime properly seen, informed, empowered and heard? Do they tend to feel that justice has been done? Our four-part report series takes a closer look at these questions, based on interviews with victims, people working for victim support organisations, police officers, attorneys, prosecutors and judges.

Tässä oppaassa selitetään, mitä profilointi on ja millä oikeudellisilla kehyksillä profilointia säännellään. Siinä myös osoitetaan, miksi profiloinnin tekeminen lainmukaisesti on sekä välttämätöntä perusoikeuksien noudattamiseksi että ratkaisevan tärkeää tehokkaan poliisitoiminnan ja rajaturvallisuuden varmistamiseksi. Oppaassa annetaan käytännön ohjeita siitä, miten laitonta profilointia voidaan välttää poliisi- ja rajaturvallisuustoimissa.

Severe labour exploitation is widespread across the European Union. While workplace inspections can help counter this phenomenon, they need to be strengthened to do so effectively. Based on interviews and focus group discussions with almost 240 exploited workers active in diverse economic sectors, this report provides important evidence on how unscrupulous employers manipulate and undermine inspections, and on what can be done to counteract such efforts.

Workers are being severely exploited for their labour across the EU, and
inspections are not effective at stopping this reality. Based on interviews with
almost 240 workers – including non-EU citizens who came to the EU and
EU nationals who moved to another EU country to work – a new FRA report
outlines the problem and identifies ways to bolster inspections.

The year 2017 brought both progress and setbacks in terms of rights protection. The European Pillar of Social Rights marked an important move towards a more ‘social Europe’. But, as experiences with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights underscore, agreement on a text is merely a first step. Even in its eighth year as the EU's binding bill of rights, the Charter's potential was not fully exploited, highlighting the need to more actively promote its use.

Euroopan unionin kansalaisjärjestöillä on olennaisen tärkeä tehtävä perusoikeuksien edistämisessä, mutta niiden tehtävä on vaikeutunut – sekä oikeudellisten että käytännön rajoitusten vuoksi. Kaikissa EU:n jäsenvaltioissa on haasteita, mutta niiden luonteessa ja laajuudessa on maakohtaisia eroja. Tästä aiheesta ei yleisesti ole tietoa eikä tutkimusta – ei myöskään vertailevaa tutkimusta.
Siksi perusoikeusviraston raportissa tarkastellaan niiden haasteiden eri tyyppejä ja malleja, joita ihmisoikeuksien parissa työskentelevät kansalaisjärjestöt kohtaavat EU:ssa. Siinä esitellään myös lupaavia käytäntöjä, joilla näitä huolestuttavia malleja voidaan torjua.

Terrorismin, kyberhyökkäysten ja kehittyneiden rajat ylittävien rikollisverkostojen EU:lle aiheuttama uhka kasvaa kasvamistaan, mikä lisää tiedustelupalvelujen työn kiireellisyyttä, monimutkaisuutta ja kansainvälisyyttä. Tällainen työ voi häiritä suuresti perusoikeuksia, erityisesti yksityisyyttä ja tietosuojaa. Jatkuvat tekniset edistysaskeleet voivat pahentaa tällaisen häirinnän uhkaa, mutta tehokkaalla valvonnalla ja oikeussuojakeinoilla voidaan lieventää väärinkäytösten mahdollisuutta.

The right to access justice and all other relevant procedural rights are not just rights in themselves; they also protect against violations of every other right. Respect for children’s rights in the area of justice is therefore essential. International treaties, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, European Union (EU) secondary law, and national legislation provide a number of relevant rights.
