Michael O'Flaherty talks in his vlog about the human rights aspects in the context of the Coronavirus epidemic and introduces FRA's new report.
The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) urges Member States to agree on a simple and practical workflow as soon as possible, to avoid lack of clarity and delays in the relocation process. This paper provides practical suggestions on relocation of unaccompanied children from Greece, building on lessons learned from previous mandatory and voluntary relocation schemes. The paper provides FRA input on the initiative of the European Commission and a group of Member States to relocate unaccompanied children.
In this edition of his vlog, Michael O'Flaherty talks about the human rights aspects in the context of the Corona virus epidemic.
In the latest edition of his video blog, FRA Director Michael O'Flaherty speaks about the publication of FRA's second LGBTI-survey on the 17th of March and how we can use the results to further battle discrimination.

O presente relatório apresenta resultados selecionados do segundo inquérito da FRA realizado
em grande escala na UE sobre migrantes e minorias (EU-MIDIS II). Analisa as experiências de
quase 6 000 afrodescendentes em 12 Estados-Membros da UE. Os resultados demonstram que,
quase 20 anos após a adoção de leis da UE que proíbem a discriminação, os afrodescendentes
na UE ainda são alvo de preconceito e exclusão generalizados e enraizados.
This annual overview provides an update of the most recent figures on antisemitic incidents, covering the period 1 January 2008 – 31 December 2018, across the EU Member States, where data are available. It includes a section that presents evidence from international organisations. In addition, for the first time, it provides an overview of how Member States that have adopted or endorsed the non-legally binding working definition of antisemitism adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) (2016) use or intend to use it.
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.
Based on FRA’s second large-scale survey on experiences and perceptions of antisemitism, this report focuses on the perspectives of young Jewish Europeans (aged 16-34) living in twelve EU Member States. It first describes this particular group and takes a look at defining antisemitism and understanding the place of Israel in it.

O manual «Crianças privadas de cuidados parentais na UE fora do Estado‑Membro de origem» é
um guia que se destina a reforçar a resposta de todos os intervenientes pertinentes no domínio
da proteção de menores. A proteção destes menores do sexo masculino e feminino é da maior
importância e uma obrigação dos Estados‑Membros da UE, decorrente do quadro jurídico
internacional e europeu. O presente guia dá especial atenção às crianças vítimas do tráfico de
seres humanos e às crianças em risco, em aplicação de uma ação definida na comunicação de 2017
que pretende intensificar a ação da UE contra o tráfico de seres humanos, e tem em conta padrões
identificados, nomeadamente no que diz respeito à especificidade de género do crime.
Algorithms used in machine learning systems and artificial intelligence (AI) can only be as good as the data used for their development. High quality data are essential for high quality algorithms. Yet, the call for high quality data in discussions around AI often remains without any further specifications and guidance as to what this actually means.

Despite efforts by the European Union (EU) and its Member States to reduce gender inequalities among citizens of Roma origin, important gender differences persist. Drawing on FRA’s own EU-MIDIS II survey research in nine EU Member States this report highlights the position of Roma women in education, employment and health, as well as the extent to which they experience hate-motivated discrimination, harassment and physical violence.
