FRANET – Data Collection and Research Services on Human Rights Issues (F-SE-17-T11), Lot 30 – EU and International level

About the Project

The objective is to provide the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) with research related services on fundamental rights issues falling within FRA’s mandate and current work programmes. The scope of the work of Lot 30 covers services related to social, legal and policy analysis at EU and international level. The EU and international perspective is understood to encompass the United Nations (UN), the Council of Europe (CoE) and the European Union perspective.

Within the framework and scope of Lot 30 a series of deliverables with different characteristics may evolve:

  1. Information request: provision of concise and very specific information on a particular issue relating to fundamental rights on a very short notice;
  2. Short thematic reports: provisions of specific and descriptive information and data on particular issues concerning fundamental rights in order to support comparative analysis;
  3. Extensive thematic reports: provision of in-depth elaboration and analysis on particular issues concerning fundamental rights to support comparative analysis;
  4. Reports of various sizes: data, information and analysis of a variety of fundamental rights issues;
  5. Comparative analysis: provide a good understanding of the situation (at EU level) on fundamental rights issues (background material provided by the FRA) that will allow solid and evidence based conclusions that enable the FRA to develop policy relevant recommendations;
  6. Participation to meetings: participation in meetings at FRA premises by a specific member of the research team.

The requested services may cover a broad range of fundamental rights topics with the FRA’s Multi-annual Framework (MAF):

(a) victims of crime and access to justice;

(b) equality and discrimination based on any ground such as sex, race, colour, ethnic or social origin, genetic features, language, religion or belief, political or any other opinion, membership of a national minority, property, birth, disability, age or sexual orientation, or on the grounds of nationality;

(c) information society and, in particular, respect for private life and protection of personal data;

(d) judicial cooperation, except in criminal matters;

(e) migration, borders, asylum and integration of refugees and migrants;

(f) racism, xenophobia and related intolerance;

(g) rights of the child;

(h) integration and social inclusion of Roma.

So far no services have been implemented under this contract.
