    L’accès à la justice est un élément important de l’État de droit. Il permet aux individus de se protéger
    contre toute atteinte à leurs droits, d’introduire des recours contre les fautes civiles, de demander au
    pouvoir exécutif de rendre des comptes et de se défendre dans les procédures pénales. Ce manuel
    résume les grands principes juridiques européens en matière d’accès à la justice, en s’intéressant
    plus particulièrement au droit civil et au droit pénal.

    This report is the EU Fundamental Rights Agency’s fourth on the topic of severe labour exploitation. Based on interviews with 237 exploited workers, it paints a bleak picture of severe exploitation and abuse. The workers include both people who came to the EU, and EU nationals who moved to another EU country. They were active in diverse sectors, and their legal status also varied.

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.

La persistance de la menace terroriste à un niveau élevé, la constitution de
réseaux criminels transnationaux sur le territoire de l’Union européenne, mais
également les conséquences des ingérences d’origine étatique de nature diverse
et le durcissement des modes opératoires hostiles dans l’espace cyber représentent
des enjeux de sécurité nationale d’importance majeure pour les États
membres ; la prévention de ces menaces peut reposer sur la mise en oeuvre,
par des services de renseignement, de mesures de surveillance attentatoires
aux libertés. Parallèlement, le développement continu des progrès techniques
accroit les capacités d’ingérences dans la vie privée des personnes.

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.

Chaque année, environ 2,5 millions d’enfants participent à des procédures judiciaires dans
l’Union européenne, parce que leurs parents divorcent ou parce qu’ils ont été victimes ou
témoins d’un crime. Bien que leur participation effective à ces procédures soit essentielle
pour améliorer le fonctionnement de la justice, le traitement des enfants dans les systèmes
judiciaires reste préoccupant.

Around 2.5 million children participate in judicial proceedings across the European Union (EU) every year, affected by parental divorce or as victims of, or witnesses to, crime. Although their effective participation in such proceedings is vital for improving the operation of justice, the treatment of children in justice systems remains a concern. FRA investigated to what extent children’s rights to be heard, to be informed, to be protected, and to non-discrimination are fulfilled in practice.

Protecting the human rights of individuals subject to criminal proceedings is an essential element of the rule of law. Persons who are suspected or accused of crimes in countries other than their own are particularly vulnerable, making appropriate procedural safeguards especially crucial. This report reviews Member States’ legal frameworks, policies and practices regarding the important rights provided in these directives, including with respect to individuals whose needs may require additional attention, such as persons with disabilities and children.
The Agency’s Director, Michael O’Flaherty, took part in a meeting of the European Parliament Employment Committee on 8 November.
