FRA’s second EU Minorities and Discrimination survey (EU-MIDIS II) collected information from over 25,000 respondents with
different ethnic minority and immigrant backgrounds across all 28 EU Member States. The main findings from the survey,
published in 2017, pointed to a number of differences in the way women and men with immigrant backgrounds across the
European Union (EU) experience how their rights are respected. This report summarises some of the most relevant survey
findings in this regard, which show the need for targeted, gender-sensitive measures that promote the integration of – specifically
– women who are immigrants or descendants of immigrants.

Victims of violent crime have various rights, including to protection and to access justice. But how are these rights playing out in practice? Are victims of violent crime properly seen, informed, empowered and heard? Do they tend to feel that justice has been done? Our four-part report series takes a closer look at these questions, based on interviews with victims, people working for victim support organisations, police officers, attorneys, prosecutors and judges.

The stories of the domestic workers FRA interviewed for this paper reveal appalling working conditions
and fundamental rights abuses in private homes across the EU. These stories indicate that, seven years
on from FRA’s first report on domestic workers in 2011, little has changed in terms of the risks and
experiences of severe labour exploitation domestic workers in the EU face.

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.
