During the meeting, the Management Board will adopt the FRA’s annual work programme 2021. The Management Board will discuss the mid-term review of FRA’s five-year strategy for 2018-2022. It will exchange views to prepare its input to the European Commission’s proposal for the next FRA Multiannual Framework for 2023-2027.
This will also be the first time that an observer from Albania will participate in the Management Board, following a decision of the Association Council on the participation of Albania as an observer in FRA’s work. Albania becomes the third accession country to have Observer status in the FRA’s Management Board, after North Macedonia and Serbia. A number of FRA activities extend to those countries already.
