  • Report / Paper / Summary
    Civil society is a key component of Europe’s fundamental rights architecture. From supporting people affected by the pandemic to helping those fleeing the war in Ukraine, civil society plays a crucial role in upholding people’s rights. In so doing, it contributes to a healthy rule of law culture. FRA’s civic space report provides an overview of the many ways in which civil society contributes to the checks and balances that underpin the rule of law.

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.
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.
