At the end of November 2018, FRA published its Opinion on the revised European Border and Coast Guard Regulation and its fundamental rights implications.

In the Opinion, FRA focuses on four issues and makes suggestions on the following:

  • How to strengthen Frontex’ overall fundamental rights protection framework;
  • How to address fundamental rights risks in specific aspects of Frontex operation;
  • The Agency’s activities in the return of third-country nationals;
  • Challenges related to the enhanced role of Frontex in third countries.

The opinion does not cover issues such as the deployments of liaison officers and their role with regard to respect for fundamental rights or cover questions of criminal liability of deployed team members.
