As co-chairs of the Frontex Consultative Forum, FRA and the UN’s Refugee Agency (UNHCR) presented the Forum’s 2019 Annual Report to the Council of the EU's Frontiers Working Party on 11 September.
The presentation focused on recommendations issued to the European Border and Coast Guard (EBCG), Frontex, in 2019.
These covered, for example, forced returns and cooperation with non-EU countries.
The chairs highlighted the necessity to put in place additional fundamental rights safeguards to cover the new activities of Frontex under its new mandate.
