Project summary

Following on from HRLC's FRALEX project (2008-2011), HRLC is now the national contractor for the United Kingdom for FRANET, the FRA's multi-disciplinary research network. For the next four years HRLC will provide data collection and research services on fundamental rights issues in the United Kingdom for the FRA and the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE).

Throughout the FRANET network, HRLC regularly produces legal studies and reports on specific fundamental rights issues in the UK. These publications include updates on developments in the thematic areas of concern to the FRA and analysis of UK laws and practices according to fundamental rights and principles of EU law.
