Laura Ferrara, MEP, is the European Parliament Rapporteur of the own initiative report on the situation of fundamental rights in the European Union for the years 2013-2014.
She believes the time has come for the EU to set up a true internal strategy on fundamental rights. As the only European institution directly elected by citizens, she wants the Parliament to play an important role in shaping this strategy and hopes to involve National institutions with a human rights remit to be fully involved in this process.
She is calling for support to shade some light on the situation of fundamental rights in the Member States by getting national organisations to answer the questions below. Please send replies to Laura.firstname.lastname@example.org by 16th February 2015.
