Strong fundamental rights framework must be part of the next strategic agenda for the EU
Today the European Parliament adopted two resolutions clearly calling for a strong agenda for the protection and furtherment of LGBTI equality and human rights in the next European Commission’s term.
On 2 July 2008, the European Commission proposed an important new anti-discrimination law.
Our Executive Director Evelyne Paradis shared her thoughts after the High Level Group's discussions:
Commissioner Oettinger’s first week as the Commissioner responsible for the EU budget and human resources is starting today.
Several equality and non-discrimination NGOs have written to MEPs ahead of next week's hearing.

On 9 November, the European Commission published its annual Enlargement Package. LGBTI rights retained a central role within the fundamental rights section of the reports.
