    This bulletin looks at the fundamental rights situation of all persons fleeing the Russian war in Ukraine to the four EU Member States neighbouring Ukraine. This is primarily in terms of the application of the EU Temporary Protection Directive. It is based on findings of FRA’s field mission to Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia at the beginning of March 2022. It is also based on weekly country reports prepared by Franet, the contracted research network of FRA between 1 March and 27 April 2022.

    The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) regularly collects data on the operations of NGO vessels involved in search and rescue in the Mediterranean. This includes any legal proceedings against them, as well as on any difficulties in disembarking migrants in safe ports. The International Organization for Migration estimates that from January to 15 June 2022 about 842 people died or went missing while crossing the Mediterranean Sea to reach Europe to escape war or persecution, or to pursue a better life. This is an average of five people per day.

    La convention européenne des droits de l’homme (CEDH) et la législation de l’Union européenne
    (UE) fournissent un cadre de plus en plus important pour la protection des droits
    des ressortissants étrangers. La législation de l’UE relative à l’asile, aux frontières et à l’immigration
    se développe rapidement. Il existe un impressionnant corpus de jurisprudence de
    la Cour européenne des droits de l’homme qui porte, en particulier, sur les articles 3, 5, 8 et
    13 de la CEDH. La Cour de justice de l’Union européenne (CJUE) est également de plus en
    plus souvent appelée à se prononcer sur l’interprétation des dispositions de la législation de
    l’UE en la matière. La troisième édition du présent manuel, mise à jour jusqu’en juillet 2020,
    expose de manière accessible cette législation et la jurisprudence des deux cours européennes
    dans ce domaine.

    Les États membres du Conseil de l’Europe (CdE) et de l’Union européenne (UE) jouissent du droit indéniable de contrôler souverainement l’entrée des étrangers sur leur territoire. Dans l’exercice du contrôle de leurs frontières, les États ont le devoir de protéger les droits fondamentaux de toutes les personnes qui se trouvent sous leur juridiction, indépendamment de leur nationalité et/ou de leur situation juridique. Cela englobe la fourniture d’un accès aux procédures d’asile, conformément au droit de l’UE.

This includes seizing rescue vessels, as well as arrests for crew members, in some EU Member States. Most of such incidents concerned NGOs operating in the Central Mediterranean Sea.

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

EU nationals who moved to another EU country to work – a new FRA report
outlines the problem and identifies ways to bolster inspections.

The stories of the domestic workers FRA interviewed for this paper reveal appalling working conditions and fundamental rights abuses in private homes across the EU. These stories indicate that, seven years on from FRA’s first report on domestic workers in 2011, little has changed in terms of the risks and experiences of severe labour exploitation domestic workers in the EU face.

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.

De nombreux migrants ont péri noyés dans les dernières tragédies survenues en mer Méditerranée. La fréquence d’événements aussi tragiques met en exergue l’urgence pour les États membres et l’Union européenne de coopérer afin de sauver des vies et de préserver les droits des migrants.
