Fundamental Rights Report 2019
The report provides a compact but informative overview of the main fundamental rights challenges confronting the EU and its Member States.
FRA’s Fundamental Rights Report 2019 reviews major developments in the field, identifying both achievements and remaining areas of concern.
Underscoring this point, this year’s focus chapter explores the interrelationship between human rights and the SDGs in the EU context. It takes a particularly close look at the goals related to reducing inequality and to promoting peace, justice and strong institutions. The chapter also explains how bodies like ours can help empower everyone, especially those most at risk of being left behind, by providing data needed to develop – and evaluate progress on – relevant and evidence-based policy efforts.
The remaining chapters review the main developments of 2018 regarding: the use of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights; equality and non-discrimination; racism, xenophobia and related intolerance; Roma integration; asylum, borders and migration; information society, privacy and data protection; rights of the child; access to justice, including rights of crime victims; and implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
The Fundamental Rights Report 2019 is available in all EU languages.
