Meet Frontex Fundamental Rights Monitors


Respect for and protection of fundamental rights are unconditional and essential components of border management. They are integrated into Frontex training, operational planning and accountability mechanisms.

Frontex Fundamental Rights Monitors visit operational areas on behalf of the Fundamental Rights Officer (FRO) to monitor and assess the fundamental rights compliance of Frontex activities. They provide advice and assistance, contributing to the promotion of fundamental rights. As the ‘extension’ of the FRO in the field, they support the agency in upholding its fundamental rights obligations.
