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.

A rápida evolução das tecnologias da informação exacerbou a necessidade de uma proteção sólida dos dados pessoais, cujo direito é garantido por instrumentos da União Europeia (UE) e do Conselho da Europa (CdE). A salvaguarda deste importante direito implica importantes novos desafios porque os avanços tecnológicos expandem as fronteiras de áreas como a vigilância, a interceção das comunicações e o armazenamento dos dados. O presente manual destina-se a familiarizar os profissionais do Direito que não são especializados em proteção de dados com esta área emergente do Direito.

As organizações da sociedade civil da União Europeia desempenham um papel crucial na promoção dos direitos fundamentais, mas tornou-se mais difícil efetuar essa promoção, devido
a restrições jurídicas e práticas. Embora existam desafios em todos os Estados-Membros da UE, a sua natureza e dimensão exatas variam. De um modo geral, faltam dados e investigação
sobre esta questão ― incluindo investigação comparativa.
O relatório da FRA analisa, por conseguinte, os diferentes tipos e padrões de desafios enfrentados pelas organizações da sociedade civil que trabalham no domínio dos direitos humanos na UE. Também destaca práticas promissoras que podem contrariar esses padrões preocupantes.

Com o terrorismo, os ataques informáticos e as sofisticadas redes criminosas transfronteiriças que apresentam ameaças crescentes, a atividade dos serviços de informações tornou-se mais urgente, complexo e internacional. Tal atividade pode afetar seriamente os direitos fundamentais, sobretudo em matéria de proteção da vida privada e dos dados pessoais. Embora os avanços tecnológicos contínuos possam agravar essa ameaça, a supervisão e os meios de defesa eficazes podem reduzir as possibilidades de abuso.
This video blog by FRA Director Michael O'Flaherty is released periodically and will address burning fundamental rights themes.

Mario Oetheimer presented FRA’s second surveillance report to the European Parliament’s Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) Committee on 21 November in Brussels.
This is the recording of the online press briefing about mass surveillance as presented by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) on 16 October 2017.
This second volume, ‘Surveillance by intelligence services: fundamental rights safeguards and remedies in the EU’, explores legal changes since the first volume in 2015 and how these laws are applied in practice. It is based on data from all EU Member States on the legal framework governing surveillance and complemented by field research in seven Member States: Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK. This involved more than 70 interviews with a range of stakeholders related to surveillance. These included overseers and controllers from the executive, indedepent expert bodies, parliamentary committees, the judiciary and actors from the civil society. These quotes are contained in the report. Below are a selection of some of them:
