“At this critical time in the protection of fundamental rights in the European Union, the work of collaborative networks such as FRANET is more critical than ever. Through in depth analysis of legislative and policy developments, and data analysis, we can support the work of the Fundamental Rights Agency in providing expert advice to the institutions of the EU and the Member States, helping to ensure that the fundamental rights of people living in the EU are effectively protected. We are delighted to join with academic and civil society partners across the EU and neighbouring states, to continue our work on supporting fundamental rights in the European Union.”Further information on the work of the Fundamental Rights Agency is available at:
