European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights
FRA


The successor to the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC), the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) was established in Vienna by Council Regulation (EC) No 168/2007 of 15 February 2007.

Its action covers the European Union.

The FRA works closely with other institutions and bodies both at the national and European level, and aims to develop a fruitful cooperation with the Council of Europe and with civil society, namely by the creation of a Fundamental Rights Platform (FRP).

Some of its priorities include the fight against racism, xenophobia, and related intolerance.

The main goal of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights is to provide relevant institutions and authorities of the Community and of its Member States with assistance and expertise on fundamental rights when implemeing community law, and to support them in taking measures and formulating appropriate courses of action.
