Organised By
European Commission
External event
FRA will take part in two European Commission workshops that aim to help prepare a legislative proposal on binding standards for Equality Bodies.

They will look at data collection and monitoring/accreditation of Equality Bodies.

FRA will draw on findings and opinions from its various publications. These include a study on strong and effective national human rights institutions – challenges, promising practices and opportunities and equality in the EU, 20 years on from the initial implementation of the equality directives. FRA will also refer to its report on surveillance by intelligence services and data protection handbook.

The workshops take place on 17 and 18 January.
