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, Dr Vanessa Wilcox, held a meeting with representatives of FRA at their premises in Vienna (Austria). The two were welcomed by the Director of FRA, Michael O’Flaherty, FRA Senior Policy Manager, Jonas Grimheden and FRA Stakeholder Relations Officer, Robert-Jan Uhl.

The discussions centered on ongoing and future cooperation between the ELI and FRA, such as the prospective Project on Business & Human Rights: Access to Justice and Effective Remedies, which would be jointly embarked on by the ELI and FRA. The Project would be led by former ELI President and current Member of the ELI Council, Diana Wallis and Jonas Grimheden on the FRA side.
