    Every child has a right to be protected even when they are accused or suspected of committing a crime. The basic principles of justice apply to adults and children alike. But children face specific obstacles during criminal proceedings, such as a lack of understandable information about their rights, limited legal support and poor treatment. The report looks at the practical implementation of Directive (EU) 2016/800 on procedural safeguards for children who are suspects or accused persons in criminal proceedings in nine Member States – Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Estonia, Italy, Malta, Poland and Portugal.

The workers include both people who came to the EU, and EU nationals who moved to another EU country. They were active in diverse sectors, and their legal status also varied.

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.

Prezentul ghid explică ce este crearea de profiluri, cadrele juridice care o reglementează și motivele pentru care utilizarea profilurilor în mod legal este necesară pentru respectarea drepturilor fundamentale și, totodată, esențială pentru eficiența activității polițienești și de gestionare a frontierelor. De asemenea, ghidul oferă îndrumări practice care să ajute la evitarea situațiilor în care utilizarea profilurilor în cadrul operațiunilor poliției și ale autorităților de gestionare a frontierelor este ilegală.

Severe labour exploitation is widespread across the European Union. While workplace inspections can help counter this phenomenon, they need to be strengthened to do so effectively. Based on interviews and focus group discussions with almost 240 exploited workers active in diverse economic sectors, this report provides important evidence on how unscrupulous employers manipulate and undermine inspections, and on what can be done to counteract such efforts.

Workers are being severely exploited for their labour across the EU, and
inspections are not effective at stopping this reality. Based on interviews with
almost 240 workers – including non-EU citizens who came to the EU and
EU nationals who moved to another EU country to work – a new FRA report
outlines the problem and identifies ways to bolster inspections.

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.

Organizațiile societății civile din Uniunea Europeană joacă un rol esențial în promovarea drepturilor fundamentale, dar le este tot mai greu să-și continue activitatea din cauza restricțiilor
juridice și practice. Deși există provocări în toate statele membre ale UE, natura și amploarea acestora variază. În general, datele și cercetările pe această temă – inclusiv cercetările comparative – lipsesc.
Prin urmare, raportul FRA analizează diferitele tipuri și modele de provocări cu care se confruntă organizațiile societății civile care lucrează în domeniul drepturilor omului în UE. De asemenea, raportul scoate în evidență practici promițătoare care pot contracara aceste modele îngrijorătoare.

Din cauza terorismului, a atacurilor cibernetice și a crimei organizate care constituie amenințări tot mai mari în UE, munca serviciilor de informații a devenit tot mai urgentă, complexă și internațională. Munca respectivă poate afecta considerabil drepturile fundamentale, în special confidențialitatea și protecția datelor. Deși progresele tehnologice permanente ar putea exacerba amenințarea generată de aceste interferențe, controlul democratic eficient și existența unor căi de recuperare a prejudiciului pot reduce potențialul comiterii de abuz.

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.
