EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) Annual report 2012
Against a backdrop of rising unemployment and increased deprivation, this year’s FRA Annual report examines closely the situation of the vulnerable, such as children, as budget cuts impact the fields of education, healthcare and social services that are important for them.
It looks at the discrimination that Roma continue to face and the mainstreaming of elements of extremist ideology in political and public discourse.
It also considers the impact the crises have had on the basic principle of the rule of law, as well as stepped up EU Member State efforts to ensure trust in justice systems.
The Report Fundamental rights: challenges and achievements in 2012 is available in English and French.
