Melanie Fink and Jorrit Rijpma present advice to the Frontex Consultative Forum in Warsaw
On 17 October Melanie Fink and Jorrit Rijpma spoke at the 17th meeting of the Consultative Forum of the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) in Warsaw.
Cooperation with third countries in the field of EU border management and return is one of the Agency’s core tasks. Fink and Rijpma were asked to identify some of the risk that such cooperation entails. EU law prescribes that this cooperation takes place in full compliance with fundamental rights and promotes European practices and standards.
The Consultative Forum was established in 2011. It advises the Frontex Executive Director and the Frontex Management Board on fundamental rights.
