FRA: Fundamental Rights Report 2020

On 11 June 2020, FRA published its Fundamental Rights Report 2020. In nine chapters, it reviews the main developments of 2019 regarding:

  • Equality and non-discrimination;
  • Racism, xenophobia and related intolerance;
  • Roma equality and inclusion;
  • Asylum, visa, migration, borders, and integration;
  • Information society, privacy and data protection;
  • Rights of children;
  • Access to justice;
  • Developments in the implementation of the Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities.

The main focus of this year’s report is on the tenth anniversary of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, outlining past decade’s achievements as well as persisting hurdles such as its continuing limited use on the national level. Other key challenges of 2019 included the respect for fundamental rights at borders, child poverty in the EU, and ensuring ethics and fundamental rights considerations when using artificial intelligence. The report is accompanied by FRA’s opinions on these developments, recommending a range of actions for consideration by EU bodies and national governments.
