aditus participates in the EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) conference

On 6th and 7th December, our Director participated in Justice in Austerity: challenges and opportunities for access to justice, the conference organised by the European Union’s Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA).

The even attracted over 350 participants from all over the EU, gathering government officials, international and regional organisations, academic institutions and non-governmental organisations.

For aditus this was an opportunity to further explore a theme we’ve been toying with for a number of months, since we’re keen to look into current obstacles to effective justice in Malta.  Neil also engaged with other like-minded organisations, further strengthening our network of partners.

Key speakers included: Martin Schulz (EP President), Morten Kjaerum (FRA Director), Navanethem Pillay (UN High Commissioner for Human Rights), and Viviane Reding (Vice-President of the European Commission, responsible for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship).
