Fundamental Rights Forum
Rights, Respect, Reality: The Europe of Values in Today’s World
On 22 June I will deliver a talk in Vienna at the 2016 edition of the Fundamental Rights Forum – a yearly event organized by the EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA).
Under the motto connect.reflect.act, leading experts, policy makers and practitioners will discuss how inclusion, refugee protection, and the digital age are connected, taking the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, as the starting point.
Drawing on my experience with The Good Lobby, my intervention will take place within the “Empowering Rights Holders” cluster, addressing e.g. what can be done to help raise awareness of fundamental rights as a means to empowering rights holders and young people, and how disadvantaged groups can be enabled to participate fully in economic, social, civil and political life.
