News

AHRI has released partnered with The Graphix Project

Centre for Applied Human Rights, University of York, UK News The Role of Art in Keeping Civic Space Open The HRD Hub at the Centre for Applied Human Rights, University of York, recently published the first paper in a new series of working papers based on conversations that have taken place between artists, activists and academics as part of the Arctivism project. These conversations aim to explore in more detail the creative practices of collaborations between artists and activists and to better understand the role of art in activism. The paper is based on the first conversation in the series – The Role of Art in Keeping Civic Space Open – which considered how artists and activists in South Africa, Uganda and the Philippines reacted to restrictions imposed during the pandemic and pushed back against closing civic and political spaces.

Led by Professor Patricia Hynes, Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice, a new report has been published on the trafficking of children. The report summarises the main findings from a 12-month participatory research study which focuses on the experiences of young victims of modern slavery subject to immigration control. In the report titled "CREATING STABLE FUTURES: Human Trafficking, Participation and Outcomes for Children", young victims of modern slavery have shared their experiences following identification of human trafficking through the UK immigration and social care system. The young participants have identified what they would need to see for positive and meaningful change to happen in their lives and have helped to develop a Positive Outcomes Framework to be used by practitioners and policymakers. Professor Hynes said: “This is the first time young people have identified what they need to see for positive and meaningful change to happen in their lives. Children and young people have rights – rights to be heard, participate and be able to develop their lives and contribute to society.” To see the full report, plase use the first link.

New FRA survey to capture the experiences of people fleeing the war in Ukraine

Call for Survey Response

Experiences and Views of Ukrainian Refugees

“As war in Ukraine continues, EU countries are welcoming and supporting unprecedented numbers of people seeking safety in the EU,” says FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty. “This poses a wide variety of fundamental rights challenges now and potentially later. With this survey, FRA seeks to assist the EU and affected countries to find sustainable solutions that will benefit host countries and the people who fled this tragic war.”

The online survey will capture the experiences and views of all adults and their children who left Ukraine to come to the EU to escape the war. The questions cover issues related to work, education, housing and healthcare. The survey also includes questions about language learning, integration, as well as experiences of discrimination and racism.

The survey runs in Bulgaria, Czechia, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Spain. It closes in September.

People fleeing from the war in Ukraine can fill in the survey in English, Ukrainian or Russian.

The survey is part of a range of FRA activities looking into the war’s fundamental rights implications in the EU.
