Meeting between Representatives of the ELI and the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA)


On 12 February 2018, ELI President Christiane Wendehorst and ELI Secretary General Vanessa Wilcox held a meeting with representatives of EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) at the latter’s premises in Vienna (Austria).

The two were welcomed by the Director of the FRA, Michael O’Flaherty, FRA Senior Policy Manager, Jonas Grimheden, and FRA Stakeholder Relations Officer Robert-Jan Uhl. Discussions centered on ongoing and future cooperation between the ELI and FRA, such as the Project on Business & Human Rights, which will be jointly embarked upon by the ELI and FRA. The Project will be led by former ELI President and current Member of the ELI Council, Diana Wallis, and Jonas Grimheden on the FRA’s side. The ELI will also have an opportunity to be represented at the Fundamental Rights Forum in September 2018.
