The Fundamental Rights Conference (FRC) is a high level annual event, organised by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights.
In 2013 the conference will focus on ‘Combating hate crime in the EU’ and will be hosted in cooperation with the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of the EU. The event will bring together over 300 policy makers and practitioners from the EU as well as national levels, among them representatives from EU institutions and bodies, international organisations, national governments and parliaments, law enforcement, civil society and many more. Participation of a number of delegates from civil society as well as National Human Rights bodies has been supported by EEA and Norway Grants. Conference discussions will build on FRA’s reports on Making hate-crime visible in the European Union: acknowledging victims’ rights, and ‘Minorities as victims of crime (EU-MIDIS Data in Focus 6)’, as well as on findings of FRA’s EU-LGBT and antisemitism surveys, among others. The Fundamental Rights Conference 2013 will take place on the 12-13 November 2013 in the Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre (Litexpo), Laisves pr. 56 LT-04215 Vilnius, Lithuania.
