Event Description

This year the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights will host its annual Fundamental Rights Conference at the European Parliament on 6-7 December 2012.

The event will be held under the auspices of the President of the European Parliament and with the support of the Cyprus Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The conference will focus on "Justice in austerity - challenges and opportunities for access to justice".

At a time when the European Union and its citizens are deeply affected by the current economic crisis, we must maintain our vigilance, ensuring that fundamental rights do not fall victim to austerity measures and that people can access justice when their rights are violated. The FRC will therefore examine current challenges in accessing justice and explore how we can turn the economic crisis into an opportunity for innovation and reform
