FRA Director Michael O'Flaherty on FRA’s cooperation with civil society

FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty speaks about the role of civil society and the FRA’s mechanism for cooperation with civil society, the Fundamental Rights Platform. “A healthy civil society is vital for the protection and promotion of fundamental rights. (…) Without civil society, we are not able to achieve our goals, we are not able to deliver our results. (…) We can cooperate to ensure that our Europe of values remains and gets ever stronger.”

The Fundamental Rights platform (FRP) is not a body of FRA, and there is no “membership”. Civil society organisations can register in the FRP database, for the purpose of developing a structured relationship and exchange of information with FRA. To register for the FRP database, please see the FRP section of the website.
