Call for applications to join the Frontex Consultative Forum for Fundamental Rights

The Frontex Management Board has launched a public call for applications for civil society organisations to join the Frontex Consultative Forum for Fundamental Rights.

One civil society organisation will be selected on the basis of eligibility and selection criteria enclosed in Annex IV. The selected organisation will have the same term of mandate, ending in 31 December 2018, as the remaining civil society organisation members.

Pursuant to Article 70 of the European Border and Coast Guard Regulation, Frontex had established the Consultative Forum on Fundamental Rights to assist the agency’s executive director and the management board with independent advice in fundamental rights matters.

The forum is currently composed of 14 members and headed by two chairs elected by its members for a two-year term. The work of the Consultative Forum is undertaken in a spirit of transparency, mutual respect, informed participation and collegiality.

If your organisation is interested in becoming a member of the Consultative Forum, please read the Background Note for the Public Call for Applications and send a completed Application Form together with supporting documentation to and/or by 23 August 2017.
