Fundamental Rights Agency
On 28 February 2017, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (commonly known as FRA) celebrates its 10th anniversary by holding a symposium.
The FRA was established by Council Regulation No 168/2007 in 2007. The Agency assists EU institutions and EU member states by providing them with independent expert advice and fundamental rights analysis.
New perspectives, challenges and opportunities in the Human Rights work frame
On the occasion of this year's Fundamental Rights Forum, but also in the light of the progress of Vienna as a Human Rights City and the commitment of private individuals to the care and support for refugees, the round table is dedicated to cooperation with civil society.
Over 150 people joined Manfred Nowak, the Austrian member of the Management Board of the EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) to welcome Michael O’Flaherty the new director of the agency to Vienna. At the event Michael O’Flaherty introduced not only himself but also his plans and priorities for the agency for the years to come.
The event was held in cooperation with the Irish Embassy, the Hous of the EU and the EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA).
