EHRC to start cooperation with EU Fundamental Rights Agency

Estonian Human Rights Centre (EHRC) in collaboration with the socio-economic think tank Praxis won a tender to offer research and data collection services on fundamental rights issues to the The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA).

“We will do our best to collect and forward objective and adequate information on the human rights situation in Estonia,” said EHRC director Kari Käsper. “Starting cooperation with FRA is a recognition of our competence and creates possibilities for further development.” In the next 4 years, experts from EHRC and Praxis will conduct research on different fundamental rights issues ranging from freedom of expression and privacy to equal treatment as members of the FRANET network.

The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) is the EU’s centre of fundamental rights expertise. FRA helps to ensure that the fundamental rights of people living in the EU are protected by offering advice to respective authorities and institutions in the Member States’ and helping them with implementing action plans and measures for human rights protection.
