Fundamental Rights Report 2017

May 30th, 2017 § 0 comments


The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights has published today its ‘Fundamental Rights Report 2017’. The Agency notes, amongst others, that “courts, parliaments and governments continued to make only limited use of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, but awareness of the need to train legal professionals on Charter-related issues appeared to be growing.” Section 1.3.2 deals specificaly with the ‘Training related to the Charter’. Accordingly, “2016 offers a more active picture. There appears to be an understanding that, the better legal practitioners are trained, the better the services they deliver. (…) Forty-five Charter-relevant training programmes in 22 EU Member States were reported for 2016. (…) About two thirds of the identified training events targeted legal practitioners.”
