EIGE, together with the other EU Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) Agencies marks the 10-year anniversary of the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights. We pledge to continue to respect and promote fundamental rights and ensure our work always complies with the Charter. This includes upholding fundamental rights in our working practices and promoting gender equality and diversity at work.

The statement builds on a previous commitment by all EU agencies to strengthen fundamental rights’ protection in their work and was released during the 2019 Conference on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.
