FRA call for Scientific Committee Members

The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) is opening 11 positions in its Scientific Committee and asked us to share this call with the TEPSA network.

FRA is the European Union’s specialised expert body tasked with providing the EU institutions and the EU Member States (when acting within the scope of EU law) with evidence based advice in the area of fundamental rights.

FRA’s Scientific Committee is a body of human rights experts that oversees the work of FRA as the EU’s human rights institution and is composed of 11 independent persons highly qualified in the field of fundamental rights (lawyers, social scientists, statisticians etc.). It is mandated to guarantee the scientific quality of FRA’s work across the full spectrum of fundamental rights. The term of the new Committee starts in June 2018 and ends in June 2023.
Members of the current Committee, many of them full university professors, come from different disciplines and have held high level positions, including being the Vice-President of the European Court for Human Rights, Chairpersons of National Human Rights Institutions, UN Special Rapporteurs, Members of international monitoring Committees and the like.

The call is available here and further information can be found here.

The closing date for submission of the applications is 7 July 2017 at 13:00 (Vienna local time). FRA reserves the right to disregard any application sent after that date/time.
