FRA is on a good track, finds external evaluation

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 13 luglio 2013

The Council Working Party on Fundamental Rights, Citizens Rights and Free Movement of Persons (FREMP) will discuss the results of FRA’s independent external evaluation on 9 July. The FRA Management Board’s recommendations resulting from this evaluation will also be discussed. The Chairperson of the FRA Management Board, Maija Sakslin, and FRA Director, Morten Kjaerum, will take part in the meeting.“Since FRA was established six years ago, we have come a long way. We have grown into a strong institution that has become a point of reference in the EU’s fundamental rights landscape,” says FRA Director Morten Kjaerum. “I am proud of what the agency has achieved to date. The findings from this evaluation will help guide us in the future – so we can increasingly help to protect and promote fundamental rights across the EU, both at EU and national level.”Key conclusions from the external report include:FRA is considered a unique provider of comparative, EU-wide studies on fundamental rights.
FRA is seen as accessible and responsive to stakeholders and their needs; respondents are satisfied with the agency’s work.
Member States appreciate FRA’s work at the EU level. However, they believe FRA should increase its relevance and visibility nationally.
Generally, the coordination and cooperation with all key stakeholders, including with the Council of Europe, were assessed very positively.
Civil society organisations are satisfied with the agency’s work, but think the agency’s mandate should be broader. The agency’s Fundamental Rights Platform (FRP) is acknowledged as an effective cooperation channel between FRA and civil society.This evaluation process is required by FRA’s Founding Regulation, which states that FRA must carry out an external evaluation five years after its creation. Ramboll, the independent external evaluator, interviewed over 300 of FRA’s key partners and stakeholders – either online, by phone or face-to-face. Questions were asked about the impact of the agency’s work, its efficiency and effectiveness, EU added value and coherence.
The FRA Management Board received Ramboll’s evaluation report at the end of last year. The board made recommendations based on the evaluation, which were recently presented to the European Commission and the Council of the EU. The European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions received the External Evaluation together with the FRA Management Board recommendations. The European Commission will publish the final report.
