The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, acknowledged the agency’s role in helping to build a critical mass to promote and protect fundamental rights within the EU. Her comments were made during her visit to FRA on 3 July to talk of her experiences leading the global struggle for human rights.

The FRA Director Morten Kjaerum welcomed her to FRA and warmly thanked her for strong voice and leadership over the last six years. As her mandate draws to a close in August, he spoke of how FRA will miss her leadership as she has been a constant source of inspiration and guidance.
