National Focal Point for the Fundamental Rights Agency of the European Union
The People for Change Foundation is the National Focal Point (NFP) for FRANET, the multidisciplinary, multi-country research network for the Fundamental Rights Agency of the European Union (FRA).
FRANET has been working since 2011 and it is composed of contractors in each EU Member State who, upon request, provide essential data to FRA on fundamental rights issues to further support their mission.
As National Focal Point, PfC’s role includes providing research related to the different topics the FRA is charged to do research on in Malta. The Agency uses this information to write their comparative reports, publish them as self-standing national reports, compose their comparative surveys or complete the handbooks they publish.
FRA’s publications provide useful references on the situation of fundamental rights in the different member states of the EU, and are regularly used by lawmakers, CSOs, NGOs, advocacy and policy advisors or academia (among others).
The topics in which the People for Change Foundation will be working on during the next years will include, according to the FRA’s Multi-annual framework the following:
The People for Change Foundation’s research through FRANET, informs national and international key figures regarding the national fundamental rights context in Malta.
