The role of civil society in monitoring EU funds

On 1 December, the Agency held a workshop on monitoring EU funds under the new Common Provisions Regulation.

The regulation foresees a role throughout the funding cycle for national bodies with a human rights remit and civil society.

Some 15 NGO representatives, as well as representatives from the European Commission, European Ombudsman, ENNHRI and Equinet discussed the role of national bodies as well as civil society engagement.

The findings of this workshop will feed into a FRA report on monitoring EU funds due to be published in 2023.
