2015 off to a positive start with engaging human rights roundtable

Today (Friday 9 December), ILGA-Europe and our NGO partners took part in a roundtable discussion with newly appointed European Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans.

This was our first chance to meet with Mr Timmermans personally, in what will be a regular series of dialogue meetings, and a wide variety of fundamental rights topics were on the agenda. During today's very constructive meeting, the organisations put forward a series of suggestions on strengthening the EU fundamental rights and equality framework and ensuring its enforcement.

More detail on the issues raised during the meeting are available here.
