FRA Roundtable 2016: The civil society joins in.

New perspectives, challenges and opportunities in the Human Rights work frame

On the occasion of this year's Fundamental Rights Forum, but also in the light of the progress of Vienna as a Human Rights City and the commitment of private individuals to the care and support for refugees, the round table is dedicated to cooperation with civil society.
In view of the increased role of civil society and the intensified cooperation between governmental institutions, international organizations, NGOs, social movements and individuals, new challenges, experiences and potentials arise.
A stimulating discussion will be dealing with these topics. The following panelists will be joining the round table: State Secretary Muna Duzdar (Secretary of State for Diversity, Public Service and Digitization, Federal Chancellery), Waltraud Heller (Civil Society Coordinator, EU Fundamental Rights Agency), MEP Ulrike Lunacek (Vice-President of the European Parliament) and Josef Missethon (Initiator and Managing Director at Talents for Austria). Moderation: Manfred Nowak (University of Vienna, Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Human Rights). The event will be held in German.
After the discussion, there will be a possibility to ask questions, as well as space for informal exchange.
