On the 18th of June 2013, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) published its annual report on challenges and achievements in the field of fundamental rights in 2012.
The annual report provides in-depth evidence and analysis of fundamental rights developments in the European Union, its Member States and Croatia. It looks at fundamental rights related developments in asylum, immigration and integration; border control and visa policy; information society and data protection; the rights of the child and protection of children; equality and non discrimination; racism and ethnic discrimination; participation of EU citizens in the Union’s democratic functioning; access to efficient and independent justice; and rights of crime victims.
This annual report focuses on how European values are being tested and what must be done to protect fundamental rights in this period of crisis. It also considers the impact on the rule of law, as well as what some EU Member States are doing to ensure trust in their justice systems.
