This year, the COVID-19 pandemic leaves a lasting mark on society worldwide. It affected everyone but some people more than others. As we look ahead, on Human Rights Day, on 10 December, we need to make the new normal a better normal. In his video message, FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty underlines the need to stand up for human rights to make 2021 a better year. This means ensuring we respect and take into account everybody's human rights.
This report outlines some of the measures EU Member States have put in place to protect public health as Europe faces the ‘second wave’ of the Coronavirus pandemic. It highlights how these may affect fundamental rights, especially social rights.
This video statement by FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty was recorded for the 2020 General conference of the International Coalition of Inclusive and Sustainable Cities (ICCAR): “CommunicAction – A common front to protect human rights at the local level”.

National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) are a vital part of the country-level human rights protection system. This report, published 10 years after FRA’s first in-depth study on NHRIs, looks at such bodies in the EU, as well as the Republic of North Macedonia, the Republic of Serbia, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It explores relevant developments, challenges to their effectiveness and ways to maximise their impact.
The Agency cooperates with the EEA and Norway Grants as a strategic partner in the protection, promotion and fulfillment of fundamental rights.
The cooperation aims to support the design and implementation of EEA and Norway Grants funded programmes and projects in selected EU Member States. It also aims to raise awareness on fundamental rights, combating social exclusion and discrimination, and supporting related civil society initiatives.
As we enter the second half of 2020, the constraints on our daily lives brought about by the Coronavirus pandemic have become a firm reality. New local lockdowns and the reintroduction of restrictive measures prompted by fresh outbreaks of the virus are a stark reminder that COVID-19 continues to shape our lives – and our enjoyment of fundamental rights – in profound ways. There is compelling evidence of how the pandemic has exacerbated existing challenges in our societies. This FRA Bulletin outlines some of the measures EU Member States adopted to safely reopen their societies and economies while continuing to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. It highlights the impact these measures may have on civil, political and socioeconomic rights.
This paper presents key findings from FRA’s second consultation of its Fundamental Rights Platform, focusing on the experiences of civil society organisations (CSOs) working on human rights. FRA started an annual consultation with organisations participating in its platform in 2018.
This video was produced for the launch of the Fundamental Rights Survey in June 2020 and gives an overview of the main results.
Michael O'Flaherty introduces the July edition of FRA's bulletin on the impact for fundamental rights of Covid-19. In this vlog he talks about the important role that people play who are engaged with the promotion and the protection of human rights in these times.
The July edition of the COVID-19 bulletin will be available from 30 July.

FRA’s Fundamental Rights Survey collected data from 35,000 people about their experiences, perceptions and opinions on a range of issues that are variously encompassed by human rights. This report presents a small selection of the survey results. It focuses on findings with respect to respondents’ opinions about human – or fundamental rights; their views and perceptions on the functioning of democratic societies – as a pillar on which human rights can flourish; and on their thoughts on and engagement with public services that have a duty to enforce human rights law and to protect people’s rights.
In 2019, the International Organization for Migration estimated that 1,866 people have died or gone 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. In recent years, a significant proportion of migrants in distress at sea have been rescued by civil society vessels deployed with a humanitarian mandate to reduce fatalities and bring rescued migrants to safety. Since 2018, however, authorities in some EU Member States started viewing civil society-deployed rescue vessels with hostility. As a reaction, national authorities initiated about 40 administrative and criminal proceedings against crew members or vessels, including seizing the latter. In some cases, rescue vessels were blocked in harbours due to flag issues or the inability to meet technical requirements.
In his latest vlog Michael O'Flaherty introduces FRA's survey of 35,000 people on attitudes to human and fundamental rights.
Le présent Focus examine dans le détail l’application de la Charte des droits fondamentaux de l’Union européenne, qui est juridiquement contraignante depuis dix ans. Au niveau de l’Union européenne (UE), la Charte a gagné en visibilité et a été le moteur d’une nouvelle culture des droits fondamentaux. Au niveau national, la connaissance et l’utilisation de la Charte sont limitées. Les instances judiciaires ont de plus en plus recours à la Charte, ce qui démontre l’importance de cet instrument moderne. Cependant, son utilisation par les gouvernements et les parlements reste faible. Par exemple, rien n’indique qu’une quelconque autorité soit chargée de contrôler régulièrement la législation nationale transposant le droit de l’UE afin de s’assurer de sa compatibilité avec la Charte.
L’année 2018 a été marquée par de nombreux anniversaires importants dans le monde des droits humains. En effet, nous avons commémoré les 70 ans de la Déclaration universelle des droits de l’homme, et les 65 ans de la Convention européenne des droits de l’homme.
Le 5 juillet, Michael O’Flaherty, Directeur de la FRA, s’est rendu à La Haye pour participer à des réunions dans des agences de l’UE et des ministères des Pays-Bas.
Cette année marque le 25e anniversaire de la Déclaration et du Programme d’action de Vienne sur les droits de l’homme. Ce texte historique a ouvert la voie à de sérieux progrès en la matière. Il est à l’origine de la création de nouveaux textes législatifs et d’institutions des droits de l’homme offrant une meilleure protection dans le monde entier. À l’occasion de cet anniversaire, l’Agence des droits fondamentaux de l’Union européenne (FRA) et le Bureau des Nations Unies pour les droits de l’homme appellent les États membres de l’Union européenne à continuer à défendre les droits de tous dans l’ensemble de l’Europe.
Au cours de sa réunion de mai 2018, le Conseil d’administration de la FRA a nommé cinq femmes et six hommes, choisis parmi les 100 candidats, pour former le nouveau Comité scientifique de l’Agence.
Les journalistes sont de plus en plus confrontés à des tentatives visant à museler leur travail qu’ils réalisent pour révéler la corruption, l’injustice et les menaces pour la démocratie. À l’occasion du 3 mai, date de la Journée mondiale de la liberté de la presse, l’Agence des droits fondamentaux de l’UE (FRA) estime qu’il est temps de mettre un terme à de telles pressions, afin qu’une presse libre puisse contraindre les États à rendre compte de l’injustice et des violations des droits.
L’agence a publié son plan stratégique quinquennal, qui orientera ses travaux de 2018 à 2022. Ce plan contribuera à faire en sorte que la FRA continue à être reconnue comme un centre de référence et d’excellence unique et indépendant au service de la promotion et de la protection des droits de l’homme dans l’UE.
