    The right to access justice and all other relevant procedural rights are not just rights in themselves; they also protect against violations of every other right. Respect for children’s rights in the area of justice is therefore essential. International treaties, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, European Union (EU) secondary law, and national legislation provide a number of relevant rights.

    FRA helps EU institutions and countries in the European Union (EU), so-called EU Member States, to ensure that the rights of all people including children are respected. It collects information about rights across the EU and gives advice on how to improve the conditions of vulnerable people such as migrants, asylum seekers, victims of violence, racism and hate crime.

    Each year, an estimated 2.5 million children go through legal procedures. Two-thirds of children do not receive adequate information during proceedings. Their understanding of their rights and procedures is rarely checked. The behaviour of legal professionals affects to what degree children feel safe and comfortable. These videos provide practical guidelines about how to ensure justice is child-friendly.

    Die Agentur der Europäischen Union für Grundrechte (FRA) hat auf Anfrage der Europäischen Kommission eine Untersuchung zu nationalen Kinderschutzsystemen in den 28 Mitgliedstaaten der Europäischen Union (EU) durchgeführt. Sie geht so der Frage nach, wie nationale Kinderschutzsysteme funktionieren, und versucht gemeinsame Herausforderungen und vielversprechende Praktiken aufzuzeigen.

The Coronavirus pandemic strongly affected young people. They are frequently blamed for spreading the virus. They also face widespread unemployment. In this vlog, FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty points to the need to address such challenges. On FRA’s side, young people, as human rights champions, will be at the heart of the debate at the Fundamental Rights Forum from 11 to 12 October.

This report presents findings from FRA’s 2019 survey on Roma and
Travellers in Belgium, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and
the United Kingdom. The survey included interviews with almost
4,700 Roma and Travellers, collecting information on more than
8,200 individuals living in their households.
In his latest video blog, FRA Director Michael O'Flaherty speaks about the devastating effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Roma community. Roma children are in danger of losing almost a whole year of schooling. It’s like losing a generation. It’s robbing children of the one place where they can have hope and dream the same dreams of every other child.

The Coronavirus pandemic continues to interrupt everyday life in the EU
in unprecedented ways. But the way it affects our societies is shifting.
As governments gradually lift some of the measures put in place to
contain the spread of COVID-19, new fundamental rights concerns arise:
how to ensure that the rights to life and health are upheld as daily life
transitions to a ‘new normal’. This Bulletin looks at declarations of states of
emergency, or equivalent, and how they came under scrutiny. It considers
the impact on fundamental rights in important areas of daily life, and
includes a thematic focus on the pandemic's impact on older people
Michael O'Flaherty outlines fundamental rights considerations when developing technological responses to public health, as he introduces the focus of FRA's next COVID-19 bulletin.

In recent years, thousands of girls and boys have reached Europe without their parents, and sought international
protection. Many of them experienced violence, abuse and neglect in their home countries, and while in
transit. They have the right to be protected in line with the provisions of the UN Convention on the Rights of
the Child, the European Convention on Human Rights, and European Union law. This report explores the challenges and good practices gathered in the implementation of such relocation
programmes. Based on information FRA collected in 10 EU Member States, it aims to help national authorities
to support the relocation of unaccompanied children by taking measures that are fully rights compliant
and practically feasible.
Based on the lessons learned from relocation
experiences and on existing international and EU legal
standards, FRA has developed a number of practical
suggestions for the adjustment of relocation efforts to
the protection needs of unaccompanied children. This
guidance aims to be a practical tool for Member States
that wish to engage in the relocation of unaccompanied
children and in any future responsibility-sharing
mechanisms, and to gain knowledge on how this can
be done while respecting the child’s best interests.

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.

Over 2.5 million people applied for international protection in the 28 EU Member States in 2015 and 2016. Many of those who were granted some form of protection are young people, who are likely to stay and settle in the EU. The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights interviewed some of them, as well as professionals working with them in 15 locations across six EU Member States: Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Italy and Sweden. This report presents the result of FRA’s fieldwork research, focusing on young people between the
ages of 16 and 24.

Individuals who are not entitled to stay in the European Union are typically subject
to being returned to their home countries. This includes children who are not
accompanied by their parents or by another primary caregiver. But returning such
children, or finding another durable solution, is a delicate matter, and doing so in full
compliance with fundamental rights protections can be difficult. This focus paper
therefore aims to help national authorities involved in return-related tasks, including
child-protection services, to ensure full rights compliance.

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.

Manualul Copiii lipsiți de îngrijire părintească aflați într-un alt stat membru al UE decât statul lor
de origine își propune să consolideze răspunsul tuturor actorilor relevanți din domeniul protecției
copilului. Protecția acestor fete și băieți este de importanță capitală și reprezintă o obligație pentru
statele membre ale UE, derivată din cadrul juridic internațional și european. Prezentul ghid pune
accentul pe copiii care devin victime ale traficului de persoane și pe copiii aflați în pericol, punând în
aplicare o acțiune prevăzută în Comunicarea din 2017 privind intensificarea acțiunii UE de combatere
a traficului de persoane, și ține seama de tiparele identificate, inclusiv în ceea ce privește specificul
de gen al infracțiunii.
