The regulatory framework under which the Fundamental Rights Agency operates is not fully appropriate for it to discharge its mandate effectively. The FRA faces four limitations: its areas of work are defined only every five years; its Regulation does not explicitly set out its role; it can only submit opinions based on a request by an EU institution; and its sole focus on the Charter of Fundamental Rights. This study looks into how this situation could be improved.
