EU Fundamental Rights Agency consults with civil society organisations on eve of 10th anniversary of the Charter

The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (the Charter) entered into force on 1 December 2009.

Shortly before the 10th anniversary of this key human rights document, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) wants to collect the views, perceptions, experiences but also concrete proposals of civil society organisations regarding its implementation.

The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union

New Europeans works closely with the Fundamental Rights Agency through our membership of the European Civic Forum and the Association for the Defence of Human Rights in Europe.

In 2018, we took part in a conference on "Examining the Civic Space in Europe" at Europe House in Vienna, organised by the FRA in collaboration with the European Civic Forum (ECF) and the Austrian Interest Group of Public Benefit Organisations.

We are pleased to be working with the ECF to help promote the questionnaire and to help ensure that there is the widest possible consultation with civil society organisations in this survey.

Your responses will:

* bring civil society’s ‘voice’ to various fora where the evaluation of the Charter will be discussed surrounding the 10th anniversary,

* feed into a conference paper to be distributed at a high level conference we are co-organising with the European Commission and the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the EU,

* inform the focus section of the Agency’s Fundamental Rights Report 2020, which will be dedicated to the Charter.

Completing the questionnaire should take around 15 minutes of your time.

There are 21 questions with a possibility to add comments and information. The survey will not collect any personal information or the name of your organisation.

The questionnaire ends with few standard background questions about your organisation (level of activity, country, type of organisation, type of activity, approximative number of staff and volunteers).

The data collected will be exclusively accessed by designated FRA staff members dealing with this specific consultation. Please be reassured that your answers will be combined with those of other respondents and only aggregated statistics will be reported.
