Attending the ''Reinforcing the EU Charter: Rights of people in the EU in the next decade'' online event
On 7 December, it was 20 years since the proclamation of the EU Charter of fundamental rights (EU Charter) by the Presidents of the EU institutions. On that day, the EU Agency for fundamental rights (FRA), in partnership with the European Commission, held a virtual conference.
European Commission Vice-President Věra Jourová, in charge of the revised strategy for the Charter’s implementation, President of the EU Court of Justice Koen Lenaerts and FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty discussed about the need for collective efforts to reinforce application of the EU Charter.
The aim was to encourage EU and national policymakers, legal practitioners, and other relevant stakeholders to better apply the EU Charter nationally. It showcased FRA Charter assistance and products, as well as case law that highlights the relevance of the EU Charter for national actors.
